WALKERS, dog owners and cyclists are being urged to get out and explore the Vale of Pewsey.

The Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership has launched Discover Pewsey Vale – an online planner for your trip.

Offering a selection of walking and cycling itineraries, the routes follow recognised walking trails but also take you off on local detours that you otherwise may not find.

Susie Brew, coordinator for the Pewsey Vale Tourism Partnership, said: "If you love getting out in the great outdoors, then look no further.

"Ranging from one-day up to a week and beyond, there are routes and activities for you to select.

"With lots of ideas on where to eat, where to stay and local transport options, the itineraries provide you with all the information you need to plan your visit to the beautiful Vale of Pewsey."

Dawn Wilson, chair of the Partnership, said: "These planned itineraries can be used by visitors or by local people – there are lots of ideas for people to use and adapt to suit their speed and the time available to them.

“They include self-guides for places of interest, as well as gpx files for use on walking apps. The itineraries support our recent accreditation with Walkers are Welcome, demonstrating the quality and variety of walking in the area.

“We are looking forward to releasing details of our walking and cycling route – the Pewsey Vale Circular Way – later in the year.”

The Itineraries will encourage people to visit and to stay longer in the Vale of Pewsey, helping the local economy in the Pewsey Community Area.

If you are a local business and would like to be included in the itineraries contact Susie Brew at susie@visitpewseyvale.co.uk.
