An ocean of grassland and a sweep of big sky. Ancient monuments loom out of the mist while camouflaged soldiers crouch in the undergrowth. Salisbury Plain is a landscape of extremes.
The largest area of chalk grassland in northwest Europe and home to 2,300 prehistoric sites, it is also the largest military training area on British soil.
Surprisingly the military presence benefits the archaeological sites and natural habitats. This walk follows public footpaths deep into the military training area, to experience a totally new kind of landscape!
Walk along Britain's largest prehistoric long barrow to an East German village. Hunt in puddles for tiny shrimp and look out for the largest birds in Europe.
