This is a circular walk
Starting from the Knap Hill car park south of East Kennett the walk initially does a short circuit allowing us to view the Wansdyke and the Vale of Pewsey White Horse. We then follow the ridge eastwards over Walkers Hill and along the Tan Hill way with great views of the Vale of Pewsey. We leave the ridge to descend to the canal at Wilcot following it to Pewsey Wharf and the delightfully old and quaint Waterfront Inn.
After lunch we climb back up onto the ridge via Giants Grave and follow its northern Edge looking to the Marlborough Downs and the Ridgeway. Gorgeous views all day hopefully and a walk to blow cobwebs away.
Give us a try!
This is one of hundreds of Ramblers group walks for all ages and abilities every week - all led by our experienced walk leaders.
You’re welcome to join us on any of our walks to see if the Ramblers is for you. Then, once you’ve enjoyed the views, fun, exhilaration and good company, it’s just a case of becoming a member.
Do make sure you're fit enough and have the right footwear and clothing for the walk you want to do, though. You can contact the group or leader if in doubt.
