North Wiltshire Pubs - 10 Pub Walks

North Wiltshire Pubs - 10 Pub Walks

by: Robert Wood
The watery vein that runs through North Wiltshire is not the Thames, which soon disappears into Oxfordshire, but the Kennet and Avon Canal. It features in three of the walks and could be said to constitute the southern boundary of North Wiltshire. Throughout the area there is a pleasant mix of downland (Marlborough Downs), woods (West Woods) and forest (Savernake). There are also ridges offering unforgettable views of the countryside around.

All of the walks in this pocket 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, between 3.5 and 9 miles long, are graded between one and three boot symbols with three boots the hardest. Distance and a short description of the terrain are also provided. Clear route directions are provided together with simple sketch maps. A good pub is included in each walk and details of opening times, type of menu, character and telephone number are included.

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.

Malmesbury and Little Somerford - 7 miles
Bremhill and Maud Heath - 3.5 miles
