Complete guide to walking the entire Ridgeway from Lyme Regis on the south coast to Hunstanton on the Norfolk coast, combining the shorter Icknield Way with the Wessex Ridgeways and the Peddars Way, a total of 580km (360 miles).It has been called the oldest road and archaeologists tell us that it was walked when the stone circle at Avebury was just a glint in its builder's eye. Neolithic tradesmen, pilgrims and invading armies of five millennia have used this route, which is now fully accessible to walkers and ramblers.Running for 583km (363 miles), it is both the oldest and longest single inland path, incorporating four established long distance paths: The Wessex Ridgeway, The Ridgeway National Trail, the Icknield Way and the Peddars Way National Trail. It is a walk of incredible variation: from the flat open plateau of the Salisbury Plain to the undulating Dorset hills, from airy ridges above Wantage to the big sky country around Thetford; from small, intimate villages of the shires to the pleasant northern fringes of Luton.
