Tips and advice for mobility equipment and disability aids in Alresford, Hampshire.
New Alresford or simply Alresford (pronounced Allsford) is a pretty Georgian market town about 8 miles northeast of Winchester and 12 miles southwest of Alton in Hampshire.
It is renowned for its colour-washed houses, riverside walks, and fascinating selection of specialist shops, tearoom, bistros and pubs. Alresford is not only the western terminus for the Watercress Line, it is also known as the UK’s capital of watercress farming.
Much of the town is predominantly wheelchair friendly and once you have immersed yourself in the local scene, we would heartily recommend boarding the steam locomotive for the 10-mile trip to Alton.
Pick up a pocket guide from shops around the town, to make the most of your visit. Pictured here is the Alresford Fulling Mill, dating back to the 13th Century.
