The walk is generally dry under foot, but some of the footpaths around the ring itself are ploughed up from time to time. The local farmer, like many others, seems to believe that driving the tractor along the line of the path once, counts as reinstating it.
If you are driving through Spetisbury from the south, look out for the turning on your left, signposted "Bridleway to South Farm" just after the speed camera. If you are going too fast you will miss it; the turning that is, not the speed camera. The turning is easier to spot if you are coming from the north.
