    Gorgeous shots guys. So neat too; 5000 years? Roads by me in NJ are 50 years old LOL. I love England’s history and its immense beauty. What a winner of a nation. Can’t wait to visit. Thanks for the inspired share.

      Yes, Ryan, it was first used in the Neolithic era. It’s a stunning region full of history but somehow overshadowed by other mainstream destinations in England. Hope this post changes that

    I am a fan of the early story of England’s monarchy including the tales of Merlin and the Round Table. This is a lovely place, and Marlborough makes it so special. I guess hosting a wedding here would be more significant for locals.

    I didn’t know there are tons of good places to visit in UK. I haven’t been there personally so I hope I can visit it soon. I’m placing it in my travel journal.

    Am so glad I came across this. So need to explore UK, while I still am in UK. I so want to explore the lush green open landscapes that UK has to offer, and this 85 mile ridge is definitely in the plan.

    I never heard about the Ridgeway and even that it is the oldest road in Britain. This road passes through beautiful towns, rolling hills with stunning landscapes. I would love to go for Avebury as it allows to move around stone figurines and we can even touch them. Marlborough town is very picturesque and I can see a beautiful Autumn here. Nice shots and thanks for sharing a very offbeat destination from Britain.

    Wiltshire Ridgeway is an 85-miles-long path and is as old as the Bronze Age. Wow! There is something new to discover everyday. I have been to UK twice and I wish I had known about this amazing hidden gem! Would have loved to walk the ridgeway. The pictures looks fantastic and gazing at Avebury, I thought this looks different from Stonehenge and you are right, it is not a very popularly spoken spot. That’s what would make it special though for me, apart from that fact that the whole village is within the stone circles. Even Wayland’s Smithy looks unique. Now I have something new to discover on my next trip to Britain and take this amazing historical trip.

      Thanks, Navita! You know me, I like getting off the beaten track 🙂 I hope you get the chance to walk the Ridgeway when you visit the UK again.

    What a great way to see history up close. This Ridgeway has continued its role as a link between towns and commerce and what a great tribute to camp alongside it as must have been done by so many travelers. I find both the stone circles and the horses fascinating and it is amazing that they’ve been around for so long.

    Very interesting and historical place! This is the first time I heard of it even though I have spend quite a lot of time in the U.K. I love the views and how green the nature is there. The white horse is an very interesting detail. I didn’t think that even that had an historical story.

    I love your fall picture of Marlborough! It looks gorgeous. Also, Avebury’s pre historical stones look amazing, a slight bit like the Stone Henge. And the village of Ogbourne is the perfect kind of place I’d like to visit. Beautiful countryside and history are the two things I look for in my trips and it seems the Ridgeway has a mix of it all!
