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.

The Great Stones Way passes over comparatively gentle terrain, each stage having less than 250m of ascent. Described in 6 stages, it's perfect for an energetic long weekend or take up to a week to enjoy the prehistoric landscape, Neolithic henges and stone circles, Bronze Age barrows and Iron Age hillforts.
