The result is an ideal companion to exploring both the popular and untouched corners of the North Wessex Downs. The name 'Wessex' brings to mind Alfred the Great, Saxon hordes and chalk downs sculpted into ancient forts. And while that is all true, the North Wessex Downs are also accessible hills that rise above the towns and rural plains of southern England and roll gently west from Reading and Basingstoke to Swindon and down past Malborough to Andover. From white horses carved into chalk hillsides, to Avebury hill fort, neolithic barrows, ancient villages tucked next to babbling rivers in the shadow of the Downs and long panoramic views from county high-points, the North Wessex Downs offer walkers days of exploration in the south of England.
