One of a series of walks created and documented by experts and enthusiasts at the Bedwyn Footpaths Group.
This circular walk rises from the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath, through a restored ancient sunken path, to fields with beautiful views. After a short stretch along a Roman road, it descends back to Bedwyn through woodland and fields.
Moderate walking conditions. One stile. If cross-field paths are under plough, use the field edge.
Places to eat and drink along the way:
The Three Tuns Freehouse in Great Bedwyn - Dog Friendly
The Swan Inn in Wilton - Dog Friendly
