Event description

Description

Join the National Trust Ranger on a 3.5 mile walk to discover another aspect of the Stonehenge Landscape as we look at the wildlife that make their home here.

Listen to the distinctive sound of the lark ascending, in the hedgerows birds such as yellowhammer and corn bunting can be seen. Large areas of chalk grassland have been restored, the flora attracting butterflies such as common blue. The walk will take in the impressive King Barrow Ridge with its Bronze Age barrows and veteran beech trees, where woodpecker can often be seen. We will to stop here for lunch and a chance to take in the landscape, please bring your own picnic.

Other Information:

Meeting in a car park off Tombs Road (Larkhill) at OS grid reference SU 14382 43626 (nearest postcode SP4 8NB).

Dress for the weather - wrap up warm as it gets chilly up on the downs - and wear stout footwear. You may like to bring a drink and a snack.

Access is by pedestrian and farm gates; the terrain is mostly grassland and trackways, often uneven underfoot. Cattle and sheep graze the gently sloping downs.

Please note, traffic on the A303 is often congested around holidays and weekends.

Although your guide will tell you about it, this walk doesn't visit the Stone Circle. You might like to visit it before the walk; NT members are admitted free.
