A beautiful walk in May surrounding this historic village. Around 5.5 miles along well signposted footpaths, country lanes and along the Kennet and Avon canal. Nice pub on the way too. Glorious views.

We found the White Horse Trail , a wonderful and easy to follow 7 mile walk, and had a booklet (purchased from Trowbridge tourist information) with many walking trails well described. Wonderful walking country and many circular walks incorporating the Kennett and Avon Canal.

Wiltshire is a beautiful county, with magnificent walks. There are stone circles, white horses, many historical places of interest, far reaching views over rolling hills. Savernake Forest is a lovely place to visit for a picnic, canals, rivers, lakes, everything you could wish for.
