The Marshes of the Pewsey Vale

The route the sarsens, and maybe the bluestones, were brought across the Pewsey Vale to Salisbury Plain was, in my opinion, largely governed by the necessity of staying on the firmer dryer land.

The present damp weather provides a snapshot of the land still liable to flooding despite the many drainage and canalisations of rivers. These are the remnants of the large marshy areas that filled the vale.

My suggested route from West Woods to the top of Redhorn Hill via Marden looks the best.
