With its chalk downland Wiltshire is full of interesting places to walk. The downs of Marlborough, Pewsey and the Cranborne Chase have expansive views, whilst the chalk stream valleys around Salisbury lead through attractive villages. The Kennet and Avon canal passes through the north of the county and can either be undertaken as a long distance trail or with sections easily incorporated into shorter walks.
The county is rich with ancient history, including the world famous stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury and Salisbury Cathedral, but there is a lot more to see than these tourist hotspots. There are numerous standing stones, Ironage hillforts and ancient burial mounds and many ancient droves and footpaths connecting towns and villages.
One of the beauties of the county is that it is all too often overlooked as a walking location. Therefore, once away from urban conurbations you may only meet a handful of people whilst out on a days walking.
The table below provides a link to each of my Wiltshire walks or the interactive map can be used to identify a walk; this website is still in the development phase and more walks are being added every week.
