For leg 2 of the Autumn 100 we start in Goring and turn around at Swyncombe and then leg 3 takes you out to Chain Hill before turning back to Goring. This great book covers the whole Ridgeway trail and would be worth a look beyond your A100 training.
An 87-mile (139km) National Trail, the Ridgeway runs from Overton Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. Part of this route follows Britain’s oldest road, dating back millennia. Taking 5-7 days, this is not a difficult walk and the rewards are many: rolling countryside, Iron Age forts, Neolithic burial mounds, white horses carved into the chalk downs and picturesque villages.
With accommodation, pubs and restaurants indetailed guides and maps to 24 towns and villagesincluding Marlborough and Avebury.
Includes 53 detailed walking maps– the largest-scale maps available – at just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 31/8 inches to one mile) these are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops.
Unique mapping features– walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat, points of interest. These are not general-purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers.
Itineraries for all walkers– whether hiking the entire route or sampling highlights on day walks or short breaks. Detailed public transport information for all access points.
