By cycle or on foot you’ll follow the ancient drovers’ road, the Ridgeway; one of the network of ancient ‘green roads’ criss-crossing Britain.

You’ll encounter mysterious earth works such as the White Horse, scoured out of the turf with chalk and perhaps the emblem of a local tribe; ancient tombs like Waylands Smithy and strange creations such as Dragon Hill and maybe a ceremonial site.

If you happen to have a kite to hand you can spend some time flying it from Uffington Castle, amid the sweet scented meadow flowers and humming bees.
