This guidebook to 30 walks in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) explore walking routes between 7 and 20km in length, through Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.

The name 'Wessex' brings to mind Alfred the Great, Saxon hordes and chalk downs sculpted into ancient forts. And while that is all true, the North Wessex Downs are also accessible hills that rise above the towns and rural plains of southern England and roll gently west from Reading and Basingstoke to Swindon and down past Malborough to Andover.

From chalk white horses, to Avebury hill fort, neolithic barrows, ancient villages tucked next to babbling rivers in the shadow of the Downs and long panoramic views from county high-points; the walks in this guidebook offer fantastic half and full days for walkers of all abilities. Alongside detailed route descriptions and OS maps, is a wealth of detail on points of interest along the way, as well as practical information on the area from public transport links, to ideal refreshment stops on each walk. The result is an ideal companion to exploring both the popular and untouched corners of the North Wessex Downs.
