Having undertaken all routes between Corsham and Melksham, this is easiest to undertake. All routes involve crossing the A350, and without extending the route a couple of miles it is probably the most rewarding visually. Unfortunately, as with a lot of West Wilts, some fields can be cropped in summer with maize, particularly close to Melksham.
