Summary: The Mid-Wilts Way is a waymarked long distance path across Wiltshire from Wootton Rivers on the Kennet and Avon Canal in the east to Mere in the south-west. The route takes in the best of Wiltshire's downland and a series of picturesque villages in the locality. James Alsop, the creator of the Mid-Wilts Way says "the route takes in some of Wiltshire’s finest countryside and downland areas and could be walked in either direction". Villages on the route going east to west are Wilton, Wootton Rivers, Oare, Seend Cleeve, Keevil, Steeple Ashton, Bratton, Upton Scudamore, Horningham and Kingston Deverill. The walking is over different types of terrain from open downland to upland ridgeways and lush enclosed valleys. History abounds on the way including visits to burial mounds, tumuli and white horses; though some of these are not as ancient as they appear.
