STONEHENGE & BROAD CHALKE WEEKEND ADVENTURE
January 22 @ 9:45 am - January 23 @ 2:30 pm GMT
This weekend adventure is being led on both days by local walk leader, Lou Stuart . (visit her website here).
Day 1 – Saturday 22nd January 2022
Join us for an approximate 11 mile walk starting from Broad Chalke.
This pleasant Wiltshire walk starts from the village of Broad Chalke with a visit to the Fovant Badges. Along the way, the route crosses some fine rolling countryside and passes the Iron-age fort at Chislebury. This walk is quite challenging due to the ups and downs but the views are amazing! A packed lunch will be required, and we will stop at the cafe at the end of the walk.
Day 2 – Sunday 23rd January 2022
A shorter 4-mile walk which includes the wonderful views of Stonehenge.
The Stonehenge landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage site containing not just Stonehenge but Woodhenge, the Durrington Walls Superhenge, Neolithic barrows, the Cuckoo Stone and a 3km Avenue created 4000 years ago which connected Stonehenge to the River Avon.
The walk does not include access to the Stonehenge visitor centre, but it does get you close to the stones. You can always visit the site after the walk.
We will start from a small gravel car park, Fargo Road, Woodhenge. SP4 7AS.
Note, please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp for both walks.
