Ancient Wiltshire Weekend

Today’s results are now posted on our results page & below. Thanks to you all for coming & for bringing some good weather with you!

 

A brand new map of Amesbury! Come and visit Amesbury, the gateway to the mystic Stonehenge landscape – the small town of Amesbury is likely to have been established around the 6th century AD at a crossing point over the Avon although there was apparently a settlement here as far back as around 8820BC and it has been confirmed as the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the United Kingdom . To the south of the town lies Archers Gate, named after the Amesbury Archer who was found near there. A sculpture depicting the Archer stands in the arcade at Archers Gate and an incredible town mosaic can be seen, telling the story of Amesbury.  You will be running around this area on our new map! The Urban event on Saturday 29th April will be based next to Boscombe Down, and is a UK Urban League and SEOUL event.
