Salisbury Plain - 10 Leisure Walks

Salisbury Plain - 10 Leisure Walks

by Rodney Legg
Salisbury Plain is the largest natural chalkland landscape in Britain and Europe. Because of military presence, much of the area escaped the agricultural revolution and remains as a single immense expanse of virgin downland which has been unploughed since prehistory. Some 80 square miles have been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest by Natural England. The walks are besides, and sometimes inside, military training areas and temporary path diversions or closures can affect some routes.

All of the walks in this guide are circular and begin at a car park or safe parking location with the grid reference provided. Public transport options are given where available. The walks are graded between one and three boot symbols with three boots the hardest and distances from 4 to 8 miles. Distance and a short description of the terrain are provided. However, all the walks can be leisurely done in a morning to work up an appetite for lunch, or used as a convenient excuse to work off that lunch! Clear route directions are provided together with simple sketch maps. One of the features that make the 'Boot Up' series of guides so attractive is the emphasis on good landscape photography and the book is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket, protected by the tough cover.

The walk locations are:
Battlesbury and Scratchbury - 7 miles
Westbury White Horse and Bratton - 5 miles
Edington and Tinhead - 5 miles
Chitterne and Knook - 8 miles
Bustard Inn and Netheravon - 8 miles
