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.

    This has to be one of the best walks. Open fields and a fantastic view of Stonehenge. My advice.... take a picnic blanket and plenty of water for your doggies, and sit back and enjoy the view :)

    I haven't used this site before but I can't see how to get this route? When I use the Google map link it says bad url?

    Hi Vicfra00, those google map links weren’t working so I’ve removed them for now. The walks are added by our members, so there is a varying degree of information on each one. At the least, they’re designed to give a ‘starting point’ for a walk. You’re probably best to follow the address provided (next to the map). We’re working on some new features that will help this in the future. 👍

    Hi, I'm new here and setting off from Northamptonshire to visit for a day of dog walking and want to make sure I find the a place to park and the route! I'll be on my own! Can I ask - the picture of the car parked up, is that where the postcode is supposed to take you to (industrial looking place?) and once there, will the tracks be sign-posted? I'm VERY green at this and a little nervous to drive all that way and get lost! If anyone local fancies a walk, let me know!!..😂

    Unfortunately the National Trust have recently made this whole area dog-free, as I discovered last week when we went to do the loop, even the areas where no livestock….
