The Ridgeway National Trail, 86 miles (139km) through ancient landscapes. Over rolling, open downland to the west of the River Thames, and through secluded valleys and woods in The Chilterns to the east, following the same route used since prehistoric times by travellers, herdsmen and soldiers.
Andy will be walking it backwards, from Ayelsbury to Avebury, coming ‘home’ to the nearby Marlborough Valley. He’ll pass many prehistoric monuments on the way. The trail is at least 5000 years old and perhaps even older.
We’ll be posting updates on Andy’s progress through the week, with links to the sites he’ll be passing. Sign up to follow the blog for email updates. And, please, don’t forget to donate to Rett Syndrome Trust. For US friends, one dollar is three quarters of a pound…and 75p can buy something useful for the research team. One dollar, one pound and more if you can spare it to make Andy’s birthday a happy one and help little girls all over the world have their own happy lives back again.
