Trip Report – Bratton Ring

The Bratton Ring is a circular trail in Wiltshire about 2 1/2 Miles long with 11 caches plus a couple of others along the route. This is a short walk with some quite stunning views from the top of Combe Hill which overlooks the picturesque Bratton village and far beyond. I recommend you pick a clear day for this series for the best views as unfortunately it was a little hazy when I completed it last weekend. It’s a great little series well worth a visit.

Steep climb to the top

The geotrail starts from the south eastern edge of Bratton with a steep climb to the top of Combe Hill, but after that it was fairly easy going. Looking at the map I could have taken a detour off the route over Westbury Hill to the view point at the top of the impressive White Horse chalk carving, which I drove underneath as I came into the village.

Model village below

The first mile of the walk was around the top of Combe Hill, the houses and church below looked like a scene from a  model village. The path then descended quickly, first through a little woodland and then down a long set of cobbled steps, through the church yard of St. James and eventually back to the car.
