Walk to Old Sarum

Start: Market Square Salisbury

The two-mile walk to Old Sarum is all about transition. Initial stages follow an urban ‘Riverside Walk’ alongside the River Avon. But beyond the ring road Salisbury’s suburbs fall away and you plunge into the Avon Valley Nature Reserve then swish though meadows towards the hill fort’s massive hulk. Keep an eye out for the ‘William Pitt Stone’, named after the MP who entered parliament in 1781 as the MP of Old Sarum, population zero (Old Sarum was a rotten borough until 1832).
