Safety information

We strongly advise against walking along the A338 or B4494 - Please be vigiliant when crossing these roads also.

Tips, hints and links

If overnighting in Wantage this route does ensure you walk the entire route and avoid the busy A338 and B4494 roads - it  does however involve a bit of double backing the way you came the previous day which isn't for everyone. See your documentation for an alternative route that avoids this route and the busy roads. (This alternative route may not be favourable for the purists as it does cut out a very small section of the official ridgeway path.)

Alternatively you could arrange a taxi locally to drive you down the A338 and drop you off at the junction where the ridgeway continues

Turn-by-turn directions

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.
