Wiltshire Cycleway-Bradford-on-Avon to Mere

28 miles (45 km)

This is the first section of the Wiltshire Cycleway which runs for 160 miles through some of the most beautiful countryside in the county.
The ride starts at Bradford-on-Avon and first heads to Farleigh Hungerford where you will cross the River Frome and pass the castle ruins. You then head to Dilton Marsh with a pleasant run along the River Frome and a short section through the pretty Brokerswood country park to enjoy. From here the route follows more country lanes before a lovely stretch through the Longleat Estate. Here you will pass the Safari park and Longleat House both of which are well worth stopping at.
A short on road stretch then takes you to the next major route highlight at Stourhead Gardens - an 18th century landscaped garden owned by the National Trust. The last section then takes you through Wolverton to the finish point at the pretty town of Mere.
Good access points for this route are the train stations at Bradford-On-Avon or Dilton Marsh. The railway at Gillingham in Dorset is also not far from the end of the route at Mere.
