Approx 6 Miles and 1000' of height gain. Mostly on good paths but some short steep bits, wet and muddy after rain.

The village of Bratton is one of three nestled under the northern escarpment of Salisbury plain. The clear waters that arise from chalk springs have been used for decades to grown watercress and are an important and beautiful wildlife habitat. Our 'figure of 8' route will explore two of these from where they come together in the village and trace both their origins up through the valleys or 'Combes' onto the Salisbury Plain wilderness that is high above, from where there's some beautiful views. At the end of the route there will be opportunity for more refreshments at the village inn.
NB The route takes in some paths which are a little steep and slippery when wet.
