Dog Friendly Walk - Hackpen Hill to Barbury Castle

You don't have to have a dog to come on these walks but the route has been chosen as it's dog friendly.

Meeting at Hackpen Hill car park we'll then walk along the Ridgeway to Barbury Castle.  This is about 5/5.5 miles along good tracks, it's mostly level but there is one quite cheeky hill.  Dogs can be off lead most of the way.

We can then got to The Barbury Inn afterwards for drinks and lunch.

For those interested in the history of this area......

The Hackpen White Horse faces west overlooking a road hairpin coming up the escarpment where we park. The Hackpen White Horse near Broad Hinton was created to mark the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. The creation of a left facing Hanoverian White Horse for this occasion generated a precedent for later Wiltshire chalk horses. The white horse had, however, been dropped from coins and the royal coat of arms in 1837.
