Walking in the Vale of Pewsey

An exhilarating circular walk, visiting the Alton White Horse, Pewsey Downs National Nature Reserve, Stanton St Bernard, Kennet & Avon Canal, Honeystreet and the two Altons - Alton Barnes and Alton Priors. The views of and from the downs are fantastic.

You also have the opportunity to visit the Crop Circle Exhibition & Information Centre at Honeystreet Mill.  This fascinating exhibition is open all year round.

And if you have time, drop in to the Photo Museum in Alton Barnes on the way - a bit mad, but full of local history and photos!


Places to eat and drink along the way:

Honeystreet Mill Cafe at Honeystreet - Dog Friendly
