Chiltern Hills

The Ridgeway National Trail runs for 87 miles between Overton Hill in the Avebury World Heritage Site in Wiltshire and Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, passing through ancient landscapes, including open downland, secluded valleys, woodland and a stretch by The Thames. For half its length it runs along the spine of the Chiltern Hills, from Goring-on-Thames to Ivinghoe Beacon.

The western section of the Ridgeway National Trail is an ancient path, widely recognized as England’s oldest road, dating back to the Neolithic period.
