Guidebook to the Sarsen Way (79km) from Coate Water Park to Salisbury and the Cranborne Droves Way (28km) connecting Salisbury to Wessex Ridgeway at Win Green. These long-distance paths are part of the Great Chalk Way. Suggested 2-8 day itineraries, OS maps, accommodation options, and reverse route descriptions are included.

The two routes can be undertaken at any time of the year, although between early spring and the end of autumn offers the chance of more settled weather and better walking conditions. Routes can get muddy in winter.

Swindon, Chiseldon, Avebury, Durrington, Amesbury, Great Durnford, Old Sarum, Salisbury, Shaftesbury.

Fairly low level walking to suit most ages and abilities; no difficulties apart from some short steep uphill and downhill sections, can be muddy in winter, some road crossings and sections along quiet country roads and lanes that require care.
