This circular walk is 4½ miles (7¼ km) long - allow 2 hours.  The walk is within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and starts from the small, picturesque, spring line village of Bishopstone at the foot of the downs in Wiltshire about 5½ miles (9km) east of Swindon.  It takes you through a lovely coombe up onto the downs, and along a stretch of The Ridgeway before descending the scarp slope and returning to the start via the hamlet of Idstone.

We hope you'll enjoy this walk. If you do please consider making a small donation to help us continue to care for the Ridgeway National Trail and provide information about it.
