White Horse Trail
145 km / 90 miles
A route, originally created by Wiltshire Ramblers with assistance from Wiltshire Council, through Pewsey, Marlborough, Broad Town, Cherhill, Devizes, Steeple Ashton and Bratton providing views of the eight white horses which are cut into the turf of the chalk hillsides of Wiltshire. As well as visiting many other historic and prehistoric locations, passing close to the start of the Ridgeway, use was made of part of the Kennet and Avon Canal.
A detailed route description for the White Horse Trail, in both directions, has been prepared by Tim Lewis and is now available as a free downloads - see download section below. This route also includes a route via Avebury and an alternative via The Wansdyke. There is also a separate "short cut" for the White Horse Trail, going across between Ashton Barnes and Pewsey, so it to be divided into two (lengthy) circular walks.
