A close encounter with the Westbury White Horse which is visible from many areas south of Bath and Bristol. We start with a short walk around the hillside on which the horse is situated. We then head east along the north western escarpment of Salisbury Plain. There are plenty of good views of the Plain’s rolling terrain, and the steep drops and distinctive valley bottoms of the escarpment. We return to the car park on a slightly different route but within the same fairly narrow band of the escarpment (much of the Plain is inaccessible here – we’re on the edge of the Imber range which has been sealed off by the MOD since WW2).
Meet at 10.15am at the Westbury White Horse car park, grid ref ST900514. The car park is accessed from the centre of Westbury (signed posted to Bratton Camp) or from the village of Bratton east of Westbury.
Ian will meet everyone at the start point. If anyone is willing to organise the lift shares at St Mary Redcliffe at 9am please contact Steph via the website. Thankyou.
Bring packed lunch, pub to finish.
