Cicerone - The Great Stones Way
The Great Stones Way long-distance route opened in 2014, and runs from Barbury Castle, near Swindon, to Old Sarum, near Salisbury - a total of 36 miles. However the route described in this guidebook is longer - a maximum of 53 miles, depending on the options taken.
The guidebook also includes an optional start at Coate Water, while variant loops visit Avebury, the Alton Barnes White Horse and Stonehenge. There's also an optional finish to take in Salisbury's magnificent medieval cathedral.
