Bridleway near Down Farm, Chilmark 2
Bridleway near Down Farm, Chilmark 2
This view looking north-west is of a bridleway that runs from a junction of minor roads near Down Farm to west of Corton in the valley of the river Wylye 7.7km to the north-west. The bridleway appears overgrown but this is more due to it being a narrow path anyway and the fast growth of early summer.

The line of trees marks where Grim's Ditch, see ST9435 : Grim's Ditch, Great Ridge near Chicklade 1, crosses east to west. 50m or so just before this the line of the Roman road from Old Sarum (old Salisbury) in the east to the river Axe in the Mendips in the west, see ST9335 : Roman road, Great Ridge near Chicklade, also crosses east to west. Although Grim's Ditch and the Roman road are not aligned they do track each other from Grovely Hill near Wilton in the east to the centre of Great Ridge in the west, a distance of some 15km.
