Summary: The Pewsey Avon Trail is a long distance walking route in Wiltshire which was devised in memory of Pat Beresford, a much-loved countryside campaigner and walker, by Natural England’s Living River Project on behalf of Pewsey Parish Council. It follows the course of the River Avon between Pewsey and Salisbury by linking existing rights of way. In Salisbury the trail connects to the Avon Valley Path which follows the river Avon from Salisbury to its end where it flows into the English Channel at Christchurch. In effect both walks can be combined ito a full length walk of the River Avon.

From Pewsey the route heads in a general south direction to Salisbury and on its course the trail goes via East Sharcott, Manningford Abbots, Manningford Bruce, North Newnton, Upavon, West Chisenbury, Enford, Longstreet, Fifield, Haxton Bridge, Netheravon, Figheldean, Alton, Durrington, Amesbury, Normanton, Great Durnford, Woodford Bridge, Heale House, Middle Woodford, Lower Woodford and Old Sarum to the finish in Salisbury.
