In the largely undocumented days between the departure of the Romans and the settlement of England by Saxons, Angles and Jutes, a dyke, with its ditch facing north, was constructed across the Wiltshire Downs. Long stretches of the eastern bank of this wall, named by the Saxons 'Woden's Dyke' or 'Wansdyke' survive, running across the open expanses of the Marlborough Downs. During the week, you will walk alongside, and occasionally on, Wansdyke, at times veering away from the dyke to visit other Saxon sites, such as Alton Barnes and Adam's Grave. The terrain on the walk is hilly and occasionally overgrown, but generally good underfoot. The walks will vary in length from between three and five miles.
