Ridgeway40 Route Map
Most of the walk follows the National Trail way-marked as the Ridgeway. Please pay attention to the map In areas with many paths such as the few miles after Bury Down (32 miles), way-marks should help keep to the correct route. The walk is different from the National Trail between Barbury Castle and Whitefield Hill (see note below that section on the map)
