Length and Grade: A 8.5 mile walk - with undulations. LOnger walk so bring plenty of water, snacks for a mid walk break.

Location: Start at the car park at the top of Downs Lane. Leaving Marlborough on the westbound A4 turn right towards Manton House and Hollow. Follow the lane for a mile and turn into the car park at the top of the lane on the left. It is behind the trees - bridleway sign is visible. If you end up at some large gates then you have gone too far.
