Introduction

A long but not particular difficult ride using old trackways over the downs to the west of Salisbury

Conditions

Mud can be a huge problem in winter, especially on the eastward leg. Best attempted in dry summer condtions!

Detailed description

Follow the bridleway out of the Berwick. Climb the hill, and follow the Ox Drove, before crossing the A 354, and descending to Combe Bissett.

From Combe Bissett, leave the village on the uphill track, before briefly joining the busy A 354. Turn off the main road and follow the Ox drove west, until descending to Berwick St. John.

If time allows, carrying on to the top of Wingreen hill makes a nice side trip.
