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.

9 months agoLovely walk but not allowed in field if sheep grazing
2 months agoThis 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 :)
a month agoI 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?
a month agoHi 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. 👍
a month agoHi, 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!!..😂
