As their is no accommodations close to the official trail path your walk today starts in wonderful Avebury - home to the stunning Neolithic standing stone monuments.

The walk today starts a few miles away from the official start point of the Ridgeway, so with your back to the Red Lion pub in the centre of Avebury you have a couple options on how to get onto the trail. We suggest doing the slighty longer route shown as this path takes you directly past the wonderful Neolithic standing stones just outside of Avebury. Eventually this path winds down through "the Sanctuary" onto the official start point of "The Ridgeway" from here you can follow the historic "oldest road" in Britain to your first nights' accommodation.

 

If you are staying in Marlborough on the first day we suggest you follow the Wessex Ridgeway path which will eventually lead you onto the Ridgeway path

Safety information

Using our preferred route you will be walking sections next to a busy road. For the most part they are well trodden paths but be careful crossing busy roads when the path alternates from the left to right hand side of the road.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation and guidebook. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
