The Ridgeway National Trail stretches for 87 miles (139km) through ancient landscapes. Over rolling, open downland to the west of the River Thames, and through secluded valleys and woods in The Chilterns to the east, following the same route used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers.

This trail covers the section from the start of the path at the Sanctuary near Avebury to Oxfordshire's border with Buckinghamshire at Chinnor.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 21 hours 21 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 5711 calories will be burnt.
