Autumn on the Marlborough Downs and the Savernake Forest


Sunday 30th October to Wednesday 2nd November 2022.

The Marlborough Downs is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and rightly so. Covering some 650 square miles, it takes in rolling chalk downland and the Savernake Forest. The forest is home to several oak trees that are over a thousand years old and is shrouded by golden autumnal hues in late October and early November.

This photographic tour is designed to take in a good cross section of what this outstanding area of Wiltshire has to offer, from big vistas to iconic beech tree clumps and chalk horses.

The Marlborough Downs is home to centuries of history with the 'Ridgeway' ancient road running for sixty miles along the crest of the downs, past ancient burial chambers, white chalk horses cut into the hillsides, monuments to the self-important, Roman encampments and the famous, picturesque beech tree clumps planted on hill tops for who knows what purpose?

  

At the heart of all of this history is the stunning Neolithic earthwork of Silbury Hill and the impressive stone circle of Avebury, just a fifteen-minute drive from our base in the quaint Wiltshire town of Marlborough.
