Description

The Ridgeway path is an officially designated 85 mile national trail for walkers along the Wessex downs and Chiltern Hills. Running from near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, the path for much of its route follows ancient trackways that formed a major highway long before the Romans came to Britain. The route is described twice, firstly from Avebury to Ivinghoe, and then in the opposite direction Ivinghoe to Avebury, so that the description is easy to follow whether you walk eastwards of westwards, or whether you choose to walk the whole path or just a section of it, for a week, for a day or just for an hour. This guide also includes chapters on the natural history of the Ridgeway, and the archaeology.
