50 Walks in Wiltshire

50 Walks in Wiltshire

by: David Hancock
Wiltshire's charm lies in the beauty of its countryside. The expansive chalk landscapes of the Marlborough and Pewsey downs and Cranborne Chase inspire a sense of space and freedom, offering miles of uninterrupted views deep into Dorset, Somerset and the Cotswolds. South Wiltshire offers the crystal waters of the Ebble, Avon, Nadder and Wylye rivers meandering through tranquil valleys etched into the chalk, linking picture-postcard villages, on their way to Salisbury and its majestic cathedral. Jurassic limestone forms the county's north-west border. This is the south-east edge of the Cotswolds, characterised by its gently undulating landscape and the distinctive honey-coloured stone buildings.

This well-established guide explores some of the best of Wiltshire's countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
