About this book

Running for nearly 90 miles across southern England, the Ridgeway National Trail is one of the most ancient cross-county routes. Following the crest of a sequence of well-defined chalk escarpments - the Marlborough Downs, the Berkshire or White Horse Downs and the Chilterns - the Ridgeway leads from Overton Hill near the Neolithic stone circle at Avebury to imposing Ivinghoe Beacon close to Dunstable, at its half-way point crossing the River Thames at Streatley.

This book follows the route as it traverses the ever-changing downland and shares the frequent spectacular views to capture the atmosphere of this special cross section of England.
