We have a wide range of walks available to you, some of which we have devised ourselves,
and some from various websites, magazines and books. There are plenty of walks to
suit everyone but if you have a specific request, we will tailor walks to your requirements.
You can walk from here, drive to a nearby start point (the vast majority of the walks
are circular) or take a bus. There is a bus stop half a mile down the road or just
over a mile along footpaths in Devizes itself for more choice of locations. On this
page you will find a couple of examples of shortish walks you can take right from
our door. Maps are courtesy of Tracklogs.
You can find photo albums of lots of our walks on our Facebook page.
