About this walk

This is a circular walk of 3.5 miles around sites related to Stonehenge.

There are a variety of starting points along the route, but the suggested one is on the lane off of Fargo Road, Larkill (next to the electricity substation). You could equally park at 1/ the Stonehenge visitor centre car park [its free, even if you don't go in] or along Willoughby Road.

Its a flat walk with only gradual slopes. Some tracks, mostly across fields.
