Starting in the village of Pewsey, we go The Scotchel, a lovely little nature reserve with the River Avon running through it, then on to the hamlet of Knowle and the pretty Dursden Lane.

We then head for Kepnal and Southcott, before walking back into the village centre. At Southcott, there is a vineyard and fabulous views of Pewsey Hill with its ancient droveways and the Pewsey White Horse.
