*This great walk was originally devised and submitted to Walkingworld by Tom Heydon.*

This circular walk starts at the Horse and Groom pub in East Woodlands and will take you alongside the northern boundary of the Safari Park to Longhedge. From there the return is through the tiny villages of Temple, Whitbourne Moor, Lane End and Dertfords. On the outward journey you will walk through several wooded areas. The first part of the way back is mainly on quiet lanes before getting off-road on footpaths and permissive paths over farmland and alongside Redford Water. Much this area belongs to the Longleat Estate. Keep your ears open for the roar of the lions and depending on the wind direction, you may also be able to smell them - or it could be the camels! There is a conservation area in the village of East Woodlands.

We did this lovely walk on a sunny autumnal day in October. We found the directions clear and easy to follow. We stopped to eat lunch for a short time and it took us 3hrs 45mins. #21 The permissive path is very overgrown and impassable, however you can follow along side it through the field. After crossing the farm track you will need to take the permissive path over the second style (if you can) or you will end up ducking under a barbed wire fence.

This walk is a lot longer than three hours and i am quite a fit person. The photos are out of date at some points and i struggled to make sure that i took the right turn.
