This was a frustrating walk for seasoned and fit walkers. Near the Royal Wootton Bassett (RWB) end, a lot of paths were overgrown - sometimes with crop. We got fed up of wading through long grass at one point and just walked on road which wasn't too bad. Many of the transitions (styles / fence / gates / bridges) between fields were extremely hard to find buried in hedges, and some were not there at all, necessitating diversions. The route takes you through a field that had a lot of very excitable cows in it. I would not suggest anyone walks through this field when the cows are there, it was a scary experience, but there was no alternative without major backtrack. Many of the paths are not sign posted at the RWB end. All the challenges were at the RWB end - the Calne half is much better.
