New long-distance walking, cycling and riding route – Pewsey Vale Circular Way
The Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership has launched a new long-distance walking, cycling and riding route – the Pewsey Vale Circular Way. The launch took place on 3rd March at a partner networking event at The Royal Oak in Pewsey.
The way marked route is a 77 mile walking route or a 72 mile cycling/riding route, with the Vale of Pewsey at its heart.
Dramatic downland, secluded woodland, sweeping valleys and the Kennet & Avon Canal provide a rich variety of landscapes for the walker, rider or cyclist to enjoy.
The walking route has been divided into seven stages, with ideas on where to eat, where to stay and transfer options available. All the information, including maps, gpx downloads and other useful information can be found at www.visitpewseyvale.co.uk/discover-pewsey-vale.
Dawn Wilson, Chair of the Partnership, said, ‘The Pewsey Vale Circular Way is the third itinerary we have published for use by visitors and by local people but it is the first one that is a completely new route – the other two routes follow the Mid-Wilts Way and the Kennet & Avon Canal. This new route supports our recent accreditation with Walkers are Welcome, demonstrating the quality and variety of walking in the area and will encourage people to visit the area and to stay longer.’
