White Horse Trail – Walk 4 of 7 (Part 1)

My fourth walk in a series to complete the 90-mile long White Horse Trail around Wiltshire. In Part 1, I leave Pewsey Downs to trek off in search of the Pewsey White Horse.

Saturday 15th July 2017

This was my second catch-up walk in the series, which I would go on to walk alone because the original date on the calendar clashed with this year’s Mendip Challenge event.

It was to start at a free car park at Pewsey Downs, a few miles south of Avebury in Wiltshire. Forecast to be around eighteen miles in length.

White Horse Trail – Walk 6 of 7

Sunday 9th July 2017

Effectively, this was the penultimate walk for Jo and Brunel Walking Group in the White Horse Trail series. Personally, I still had one to catch up on [Walk #4 – coming soon] but we’d all come a long way, however many of the full ninety-miles we’d covered.

Saturday 17th June 2017

It feels like such a long time since I last wrote about a White Horse Trail walk [three months to the day] – and, in the time since, I’ve actually completed the final three walks in the series and the ninety-mile long trail itself! All will be revealed in good time.

This route was titled Walk No.3 but it was actually the fifth to appear on the group’s calendar, due to a bit of shuffling to incorporate it in to our annual ‘Mini Walking Festival’.

White Horse Trail – Walk 5 of 7

Sunday 17th April 2017

If you’ve been following this series carefully, you’ll know that I’ve currently walked only two of the intended seven circular walks… Officially, this walk is the fifth in the series as Jo had planned it but, ‘Walk #3’ has been reserved for the mini walking festival (later this month), due to its comparatively low mileage.

So, Walk #5… It began in a place called Honeystreet. Not a million miles from Devizes and south of the Alton Barnes White Horse.
