The Walk

This long distance walk (615 miles) using footpaths and bridleways closely follows the route taken by Charles and enables you to visit many historic sites and buildings, maybe only previously known to you through the history books. It also takes you through two World Heritage Sites, one National Park and six Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty plus some of the finest scenery in western and southern England.

The walk is fully waymarked and is shown on the latest editions of the Ordnance Survey's Landranger and Explorer maps. The route is described in detail in three books by Trevor Antill, originally published by Meridian Books and now only sold through this web site. Each book is divided into sections so enabling you to pick out suitable day walks if you are not intending to follow the complete route. - More updated information is available on other pages.
 

 


The Map simply gives an idea of the route which is 615 miles.

Stop Press

The Ramblers Association web site has been reorganised and it no longer provides links to the non national trail long distance walks.  We are working to provide new links, your patience is appreciated.
