iltshire is a much neglected county for walking. The chalky hills offer many fine routes, including this route along the western edge of Salisbury Plain. The walk connects two villages either side of Warminster. Better to start at Dilton Marsh, as trains are infrequent, plus there are better pubs to kill time in at Heytesbury. The first half of the walk circuits the Plain and the army camp with great views over Wiltshire; the second takes you over four small hillforts. Regular buses back from Heytesbury to Warminster, although if you are staying overnight the Angel in Heytesbury is the best local option.
