King Alfreds Trail

9 miles (14 km)

Take a pad and pencil with you on this delightful circular walk around Pewsey and take brass rubbings of the engraved plaques along the route. The plaques have been developed by Wiltshire Walking for All and feature images of animals, insects and plants that you might see on the walk. The route also includes a pleasant waterside section along the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Good places to stop for refreshment include Pewsey Wharf and the pub by the village green at Wilcot.
