Alresford Creek ford -is it useable?

Looking at the proposed Coast Path this seems to use a ford at Alresford Creek. Is this actually useable? Is it safe?. Does anybody have any experience of using it or is it just a line on a map?


  • No, is the quick answer.

    It’s become heavily silted over. I think there is a hard track/natural gravel underneath the silt though.

    I’m quite happy messing around in the Estuary mud, but I wouldn’t attempt it without chest waders and some water to wash off on the other side.

    there used to be a 4x4 club which attempted it once a year, but don’t think they have recently -
