Stonehenge from Normanton Down

This spectacular view of Stonehenge is the highlight of the walk from Salisbury to Stonehenge, as described in the" 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.

How to use GPS data

The Android and iPhone apps, and GPS devices like the Satmap 20, work while you are out walking as the maps are stored on your device, i.e. they don't use 'data', and you don't need a signal (in practise, even with 4G, you will rarely have a signal while out walking.)
