In our packed autumn newsletter we look ahead to the 5oth anniversary of the Ridgeway National Trail next year, and how we might bring further tranquillity to it. The FoR Swire Ridgeway Arts Prize returns in 2023: dates inside. Hill forts are a feature on and near the western half of the Ridgeway. In Uffington Professor Gary Locke explained why they were there – and not all for the same reason. Tim Lewis describes his walk along the Dorset section of the Wessex Ridgeway, part of the coast-to-coast Great Chalk Way, which we champion. We have photos of some of the recent work of the Ridgeway volunteers, and their autumn BBQ. It is the Ridgeway Partnership that manages the Ridgeway; we explain who the partners are. This and more, including humour.
