The Ridgeway (Pace): June 16-19th
Join us for any number of the 4 days we split the 87 mile route over:
The Ridgeway National Trail passes through a surprisingly remote part of southern central England. From its start in the World Heritage Site of Avebury, it follows a ridge of chalk hills in a northeasterly direction for 87 miles (139 Km) to reach Ivinghoe Beacon lying to the northwest of London. Popularly known as ‘Britain’s oldest road’.
This is your opportunity to walk anything from one day of your choosing through to covering the entire Ridgeway over 4 days!
Follows many thousands of people's footsteps:
The Ridgeway still follows the same route over the high ground used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers. Today it is popular with walkers, runners, cyclists, horse riders and disabled people using mobility scooters.
Its 87 miles passes through two distinct landscapes: the rolling North Wessex Downs and the undulating Chiltern Hills with its expansive farm and woodland dotted with historic towns.
The rich history of these areas is clear throughout, represented by the remains of ancient forts, extraordinary stone circles, ancient barrows, and the striking figure of the Uffington White Horse.
Transport & Accommodation:
Transport will be provided from wherever you finish your walk, back to where you started.
