As a route, the Ridgeway is thought to be at least 4,000 years old. Half-way along today's walk this ancient track crossed a more modern highway: the M4.

While the motorways have their service stations, today was the first time we've seen any opportunities for refreshment for Ridgeway travellers. Sadly we can't tell you whether or not The Shepherds Rest serves a good pint - we walked on.
