Itchen Valley

SO30 3HQ


The River Itchen rises in the chalk downs around New Alresford, flows west in the broad valley to Kings Worthy, turns south through Winchester and eventually joins the River Test at Southampton. 

The landscapes of the valley are mainly broad grassy water meadows and pastures, together with rolling chalk downland mostly given over to farming. Set along the river are many attractive and unspoilt villages, each with its own distinctive church.

This self-guided trail combines the superb scenery of the valley with a discovery of some of the county’s historically most important churches, offering you an insight into the development of church architecture.

An additional trail of the Meon Valley churches is also available.
