This spectacular view of Stonehenge is the highlight of the walk from Salisbury to Stonehenge, as described in the www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_3/walk_67/index.shtml" rel="nofollow Saturday Walkers Club Walk 67 and "Rough Guide to Walks in London and Southeast England". A lovely walk, passing Old Sarum, and along the crystal clear River Avon. You get to see Stonehenge from a distance, so much nicer than the tourist scrum closer in.
