The Ridgeway

The Ridgeway Path is 137 km (85 miles) long and runs between Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring in Buckinghamshire to Overton Hill just outside Avebury in Wiltshire. Much of the path follows the ancient chalk ridge route used by prehistoric man.

It runs within 200 metres of White Horse Hill, on westwards to Waylands Smithy (approx 1½ mile) and then to the B4000 just outside Ashbury (approx ¾ miles further).

The section between White Horse Hill and Wayland's Smithy provides a lovely walk with wonderful views over the Berkshire Downs to the south and the Vale of White Horse to the north.


The National Trails office has a very informative site about the Ridgeway.
