Walk the walk in Ansty!
The parish of Ansty has some of the most beautiful public rights of way (PROWs) in the county of Wiltshire – crossing varied landscapes including chalk and greensand hills flanked by clay coombes all connecting points of much interest. No wonder our parish area is part of Cranborne Chase & West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty! ccwwdAONB
All of our footpaths (see below) are currently fully accessible and carefully waymarked.

Ansty public footpath maintenance season in full swing (updated 10-06-2020)
After an enforced break from maintenance activities due to the coronavirus restrictions the Ansty volunteer public footpath maintenance group have very recently reconvened to continue to tidy up all of our footpaths after the winter storms and wet weather! Since then we have had weeks of warm sunshine and vegetation growth has added to the problems. Nevertheless, strictly following social distancing measures and operating in 2 entirely separate groups of just two individuals, footpath clearance is taking place once more. Hopefully this means local people can enjoy pleasant walking along our 6 miles of tracks through some of the most beautiful countryside imaginable this summer – whilst still keeping safe. Landowners have been doing their bit too in keeping our paths maintained and safe. Click on image for pictures of our footpaths and map details!
Footnote: apologies for the incorrect spelling of ‘Denmead’ as in Denmead Copses, Ansty. It has now been corrected. The editor blames keyboard gremlins!
