The Salisbury and South Wessex area is covered by fourteen varied
walks. See prehistoric monuments or meander through medieval
watermeadows. View Saxon churches or Elizabethan thatched cottages.
Your path may take you through coppiced woodland or ancient farmland.
Finish by relaxing in a snug village inn or by having tea in a market
town coffee house.
Twelve walks take you through this nine hundred year old ancient
hunting forest. Experience the diversity of forest plains, bogland or
deciduous woodland. Although very busy in summer, within minutes of
starting your walk the only sounds you may hear are that of Dartford
Warblers twittering or the rustle of a fallow deer fleeing in the
distance through the woods.
