[Geography - Path 14]

Path 14

Byway open to all traffic (with Traffic Regulation Order)

Eastern Holloway – From the Fifield Bavant - Dinton road, C.64, at Limbway at the foot of Fovant Hollow, leading east and south-east across Fovant Down to the Herepath (Fovant 18). Approximate length: 650 metres. Width: 4 metres.

West to East

The path leaves the Fifield Bavant road [1] by a sharp corner at a metal Byway sign (005274). There is an unlocked gate there, on which is a sign banning all 4-wheeled vehicles except those used for agriculture. This is one of the entries to the designated Open Access countryside, but if you wish to stick to the path, follow the sunken grass track rising across the Down.

At the junction with Path 13 [2] , which is to your left (009275), carry on to the top of the Down and go between thick scrub on each side, passing an old dew pond on the left.

At the Herepath , the path ends at another gate [3] (011274), where you leave the Open Access area. The sign post there indicates a Public Footpath along Path 14 (erroneously) and a Public Bridleway along Path 14A .

East to West

Start from the Herepath (Path 18) at a gate[3] (011274) on which is a sign banning all 4-wheeled vehicles except those used for agriculture. The sign post there erroneously indicates a Public Footpath, but it does give the right direction and the gate is one of the entries to the designated Open Access countryside.

If you want to follow the path go between thick scrub on each side, at the end of which is an old dew pond, on your right. The path now broadens out on to the open Down and you should take the left fork where it branches out from Path 13 [2] (009275).

Now follow the sunken grass track going obliquely across the Down until you come to the gate at the bottom, on the Fifield Bavant road [1] (005274), leaving the Open Access area.
