The Greater Ridgeway

£49.99

Product description

A detailed guidebook to walking the entire Greater Ridgeway across southern England from Lyme Regis, on the south coast, to Hunstanton, on the Norfolk coast. Running for 583km (363 miles), the full Ridgeway, archaeologists tell us, was walked when the stone circle at Avebury was just a glint in its builder's eye. Neolithic tradesmen, pilgrims and invading armies of five millennia have used this route, which is now fully accessible to walkers and ramblers. The Greater Ridgeway route incorporates four established long-distance paths: The Wessex Ridgeway (Lyme Regis to Overton); The Ridgeway National Trail (Overton to Ivinghoe); The Icknield Way (Ivinghoe to Thetford) and The Peddars Way (Knettishall to Hunstanton). It is a walk of incredible variation: from the flat open plateau of the Salisbury Plain to the undulating Dorset hills; from airy ridges above Wantage to the big sky country around Thetford; from small, intimate villages of the shires to the pleasant northern fringes of Luton. This complete guide to walking the entire Ridgeway includes full route and accommodation details, and is thoroughly illustrated with 60 maps and many photographs.
