Pewsey Vale

Walking - Leisure

About the group:-
This, our original walking group, is led by Peter Mander and meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 10.30 am onwards during the winter months, and 10.00 am during the summer. We walk at a leisurely pace for approximately 2 hours, with breaks, and meet at a variety of locations, generally within 15 miles of Pewsey. Our aim is to enjoy the beauty of the local countryside by walking along its footpaths on different terrains, ranging from Vale of Pewsey to farmland, canal and field, nature reserves, forests, Stert Valley, Wilton Water, Wansdyke and King Alfred’s trail. The walks are undertaken at a moderate pace and we usually finish with a pub lunch. Members should come suitably dressed for the weather conditions. We are an easy-going and friendly group where car sharing takes place and non- car drivers are usually able to be collected.

During May we walked in the Oare Arboretum amidst carpets of bluebells and then onto Draycot Fitz Payne, plus a new and very interesting route from Everleigh Ashes across open farmland.
Our walk in Hen’s Wood had to be postponed owing to a lay-by closure and was replaced by an undercover walk on a very hot day, viewing numerous ancient oaks in the Savernake Forest.
We started July with a restful walk through Marden and Wilsford before lunching at the Millstream. This was followed by one from the Lamb at Urchfont, over to Stert and back on the hottest day of the year.
A strenuous walk from Heddington up to Oliver’s Castle and back and then a short drive to the Rowdy Cow for lunch completed an interesting morning out, complete with a talk by the leader on the history of the battle of Roundway.
