Wiltshire trail offering plenty of horseplay

Those who like to go walking in areas with plenty of history may find it abundantly in one featured circular route.

The Independent has noted the many elements making up the walk starting and ending in the Wiltshire village of Honeystreet, beneath the Alton Barnes White Horse.

As well as the 19th century equine image, the area includes the long barrow of Adam's Grave, views from the top of the downs to the Avebury stone circle and the Wansdyke - used by ancient Britons in an attempt to ward off invading Saxons.

Saxon influence is visible in the form of two church buildings, while the walk also features some later industrial history in the form of the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Fans of the paranormal - or just very good practical jokes - may also be interested in the large number of crop circles in the area.

Those putting on their fleeces and walking in Wiltshire can visit a number of white horses, some of which are in ancient creations, while others are more modern.

An example of this is the Millenium White Horse at Devizes, which was created in 1999.
