Local Walks & Cycle Rides

Letcombe Regis lies just below the Ridgeway in an area of outstanding natural beauty with many local walks, some of which take in part of The Ridgeway Trail and can be accessed from Letcombe Regis.  On your way up to the Ridgeway via Warborough road you will pass Segsbury Camp or Segsbury Castle also known as Letcombe Castle.

This iron hill age fort is bisected by the road prior to joining the Ridgeway Trail which is reputed to be Britain's oldest road at 130 km or 87 miles long stretching from Ivinghoe Beacon to Overton Hill within the Avebury World Heritage Site.

The trail was originally used by drovers,  soldiers and pilgrims.  Parts of it follow the ancient chalk ridge route used by prehistoric man many centuries earlier.

The whole of the Ridgeway is accessible to walkers and some stretches can be used by cyclists and horse riders alike.  For further information please use the following link:
