The Great Stones Way forms a route through the wiltshire Downs, from Barbury Castle (south of Swindon) to Old Sarum, linking with the end of the Ridgeway National Trail at Avebury. With an extended start from Coate Water, and an extended finish at Salisbury, as well as optional route variants via the prehistoric Avebury Ring stone circle and Stonehenge (together part of a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site), the guide covers up to 53 miles in total.

In six stages of easy walking, averaging 11.km (7 miles) per stage, this is a guide to a journey through part of southern England's awe-inspiring historic landscape, passing Neolithic henges and stone circles, Bronze Age barrows, Iron Age hill forts and ancient churches.
