An afternoon walk, from Durrington Walls to Stonehenge, led by Museum Director, David Dawson
This half-day tour starts at 1.30pm, meeting close to the Stonehenge Inn (SP4 8BN), at Durrington. It will take approximately 4.5 hours.
Walking through Durrington Walls you will find out more about Woodhenge, excavated by Maud Cunnington, who was once President of our Society. The route passes the Cuckoo Stone, a megalithic standing stone, before following the Apple Track – a WW1 light railway. We will also pass the prehistoric Cursus and the Bronze Age barrows of Kings Barrow ridge en route to Stonehenge.
There is an option (we will decide on the day) to hear about the WW1 Stonehenge airfield and to go to the western end of the Cursus. We will then return to Durrington and our cars by walking alongside the Cursus.
The walk does not include a visit to the monument itself. Please contact us for more information.

Stout footwear, protective clothing to suit the prevailing weather conditions, and reasonable mobility will be required for the walk.
