Durrington Walls, Woodhenge, Wiltshire, grid ref SU151084342
Start your walk at Woodhenge. Go through the pedestrian gate opposite and into the field. Continue downhill into the centre of Durrington Walls.
You are now standing inside Durrington Walls. After exploring this ancient monument, turn left and walk up the slope towards the corner of the field where you'll find a gate.
Go through the gate, cross the road and through another gate. Walk past the Cuckoo Stone – a former standing stone that was a focus for Bronze Age cremation burials – and continue onwards to the other end of the field, keeping to the right.
Go through the gate and turn right, following the track until you meet a crossroads of footpaths. Turn left along the gravel bridleway until you see a sign saying 'King Barrows', then turn right. Follow the footpath round past the woods and you'll see a pedestrian gate on your right.
Go through the gate. You are now on the course of the Stonehenge Avenue. Head down the valley, known as Stonehenge Bottom, and through the gate. Just before the interpretation panel, turn left, uphill, towards Stonehenge. If you look carefully you can see the banks of the original 4,300-year-old pathway either side of you. If you have collected your ticket from the Stonehenge visitor centre, continue to the monument.
Once you're ready to move on, head towards the byway north of Stonehenge.
Follow the byway north until you reach the bottom of the valley. Go through the gate on your right and walk up the hill, keeping the fence on your left. You are now walking along the Stonehenge Cursus, a 5,500-year-old Neolithic enclosure that stretches for over 1.7 miles.
Continue along the Cursus until you reach the end of the field.
Go through the gate at the end of the field. You have now reached the crossroads you came to after Step 4. From here, retrace the route to Durrington Walls by following Steps 3 to 1 in reverse.
