Ridgeway - Trailblazer Guide

Ridgeway - Trailblazer Guide

by: Nick Hill
An 87 mile (139km) National Trail, the Ridgeway runs from Overton Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. Part of this route follows the oldest road in the country, dating back millennia. Taking 5 to 7 days, this is not a difficult walk and the rewards are many: wide views across rolling countryside, Iron Age forts, Neolithic burial mounds, white horses carved into the chalk downs and picturesque villages.

The guide includes 53 detailed walking maps at the large scale of 1:20,000, making route finding easy. The unique mapping features include walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat and points of interest. These are not general purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. The maps are supported by detailed route descriptions. Itineraries cover hiking the 87 mile route in its entirety or sampling the delights on day walks or short breaks and include detailed public transport information for all access points. There is practical information for all budgets, what to see, where to stay, where to eat including pubs, hotels, B&B, camping and hostels. Also included are guides to Marlborough, Avebury, Princes Risborough and 22 other towns and villages near the Trail. The introductory chapters also include comprehensive practical information for planning the walk, and the history, environment and natural history of the Ridgeway.
