Wiltshire remains one of England's loveliest and least spoilt counties. With its endless tracts of open downland, gentle river valleys and picture postcard villages it is the perfect place to explore on foot. At its heart, between the historic city of Salisbury, with its magnificent cathedral and glorious watermeadows.
Wainwright writes of it as his 'wonderland' as follows: 'For the explorer there are places of fascinating interest, or strange beauty, of thrilling adventure, such as are not to be found elsewhere.' and the meandering Kennet, one of the country's prettiest rivers, lies a complex network of winding paths and ancient tracks which convey a wonderful sense of space and distance. Walkers can discover a multitude of attractions, including ancient burial mounds, historic standing stones and secluded country churches.
This book gives details of 20 circular walks all graded by route and difficulty, they can be enjoyed by the whole family and are the ideal companion for day trips and holidays.
