Wiltshire is a large landlocked county of chalk downs, iron age hill forts and world famous neolithic monuments such as Stonehenge and Avebury. Much of the area has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. A large part of Salisbury plain is reserved for military use which has helped to protect the native wildlife and plants. Visitors should look out for the magnificent white horses carved into the hill sides. Wiltshire also has beautiful gardens and stately homes such as Stourhead (National trust) or Longleat which is still privately owned. The magnificent Safari Park attracts thousands of visitors each year.
I have been exploring some of the towns and villages since I retired.
I have also shared walks through the countryside including this one in Savernake forest
My most recent walk was to the small town of Bradford on Avon situated on the Kennet and Avon canal.
