Friends of the Ridgeway – Ridgeway Day: Saturday 10 May 2014, 10.30am – 4.00pm, Court Hill Centre, Wantage

The Friends of the Ridgeway are running The Ridgeway Day once again at The Court Hill
Centre, near Wantage on Saturday 10 May 2014, between 10.30 am and 4.00 pm.
It is a local charity, dedicated to preserving and promoting The Ridgeway as a wonderful place for walking and all sorts of recreation, as well as an important part of our heritage. The Ridgeway is an ancient track across England, a 4,000 year-old trade route, and today a National Trail. It links hillforts, barrows and hill figures and passes through spectacular landscapes. It is Britain’s oldest road and it’s right on our doorstep, on the edge of the Downs, for everyone to enjoy.

All are invited to come along on to The Ridgeway Centre at Court Hill to find out more about The Ridgeway and what it has to offer. Join one of its guided walks to nearby Segsbury Castle hillfort, and spot wildlife and spring flowers. The Ridgeway Day will be a lovely day out for all the family, with live music, a nature trail, art and birds of prey displays, great views and lunches or teas available.
