Devil's Punchbowl and Segsbury Camp

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

Within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this walk takes you through some classic undulating downland west of Wantage, a wonderful stretch of The Ridgeway, and includes a visit to the ancient Iron Age fort of Segsbury Camp.One of the iconic landforms along The Ridgeway called the Devil’s Punchbowl, near Wantage, can be found along this walk.

There are areas of Open Access Land which allow walkers to enjoy the scenery of this unique place and the landowners have kindly provided permissive access routes in this area too. Changes have been made to the permissive routes at the Devil’s Punchbowl recently, but there is still plenty to discover and notices have been put up on gates to guide walkers.
