The overall route is 4.31 mi long, and I concur with previous two reviews. I would add that walkers need to cross the busy A4 at the pedestrian traffic lights near Currys, to use the pedestrian tunnel, as you should not walk under the adjacent tunnel at the road, as there is no pavement.

I really enjoyed this walk across Corsham park and in to Chippenham. I was a bit worried about the start of the route into Chippenham, but in fact the new housing development has obviously included adding in Cycle paths, so it was easy.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the walk actually into Chippenham is not the most scenic, but it's easy and direct and you end up in a sensible place in town.

Lovely direct route across Corsham Park and along a farm track. Entry to Chippenham is largely along main road - the most direct route but not necessarily the nicest.
