The Guardian newspaper recently featured The Mid Wilts Way as one of its ’10 great walking trails where you won’t see a soul’. They say:
“Has any footpath been better named to avoid hard usage? Imagine proudly announcing: “I’m going to do the Mid-Wilts Way.” It sounds more like a course of therapy. And yet this is a fine, 68-mile sturdy yomp through some of England’s best landscapes, crossing other paths with blowhard names like the Celtic Way and White Horse Trail.
The route starts in the lovely little town of Mere in the south-west corner of Wiltshire, close to the edge of Salisbury Plain, and heads in a great curve north-east, taking in a variety of walking: canalside, uplands, valleys and ancient ridgeways. It finishes near the Berkshire border in another delightful village, Ham.”
So there’s no excuse for not giving it a try!!
