Imber Range Perimeter Path
This circular walking path takes you around the perimeter of a military training firing range located on Salisbury Plain. It's an interesting landscape with oceans of chalk grassland and a fascinating prehistoric history.
It starts and ends near Westbury and passes through Tilshead, Chitterne and the outskirts of Warminster. Points of interest include the National Trust's White Barrow - a large Neolithic long barrow near Tilshead and the Westbury White Horse on the Salisbury Plain escarpment dating from 1778. You will also pass the MOD's urban warfare training centre at Copehill Down near Chitterne. The unusual site was constructed in 1988 to resemble a Bavarian German village, providing troops with a simulated backdrop when training for European operations.
There's much to enjoy on this walk, including terrific views across Salisbury Plain and the Wiltshire and Somerset countryside. Wild orchids and wide variety of birdlife are also common in the summer months.
