Distance (miles)45
Overview

'Walking route being developed ... along existing public rights of way, through the ancient landscape and varied, stunning scenery between the World Heritage Sites of Avebury and Stonehenge.' Unfortunately at the time of Review the 'Great Stones Way' Website was inaccessible; so I have replaced the Link with one to the LDWA Website.

a set of four leisure maps that mark circular routes for walking and cycling around Swindon's network of paths. 

The maps first appeared on the 2009 Swindon Cycle map and have now been reproduced as seperate maps to download and print at home.  There are 3 seven mile circular routes: Haydon Wick, West Swindon and Dorcan, plus a 17 mile Urban Round, that circles the whole town.  The paths are mainly off road and safe to walk or cycle.
