  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Parked at the Plantation car park to south and did an excellent circular walk including Roundway Hill. Clear path across access land from Hill Cottage to south. Very interesting hill with some lovely combes and a barrow at summit. Superb views north to Cotswolds and south to Salibury Plain across Vale of Pewsey. A really excellent TuMP.
  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Followed the same circular walk as NW over Roundway Hill first. An annual steam engine gathering is held below the steep west slope in the village of Heddington where there is also a Buddhist meditation centre of the Vipassana movement, in which mindfulness of breathing and of thoughts, feelings and actions are being used to gain insight in the true nature of reality. Due to the popularity of Vipassanā-meditation, the mindfulness of breathing has gained further popularity in the west as mindfulness. A 10 day course at the centre only costs 250 but accommodation is shared, each day starts at 4.30am , guests are asked not to bring any reading matter with them or to talk to the other guests.
