The Rigdeway path is one of those ancient paths that was used around 5000 years ago. Now many people walk it from the start at Overton Hill near Avebury to Ivingho Beacon. I have walked some of it from time to time as It's not that far from me and even nearer to where I work.Which is why my wife met me one lunchtime for a little picnic there.
Nice map of the Ridgeway showing the main poits to look for and Didcot Powerstation, remember the post of them coming down a few weeks ago

Walk along the footpath a little way and you get a good view of Pluto & Dido the first nuclear reactors in the UK, which are part of the Atomic Energy Reseach Establishment they are now being decomissioned.

This is what is left of the Atomic Energy Establishment at Harwell, it's still quite high security there.
The Ridgeway again here looking towards Hendred Down & Wantage, keep walking that way to get to Overton Hill
Here we look from the carpark towards the other side of the Ridgeway walk that way towards Ivingho Beacon. I'll post some more parts of in in the future.
