We're nearing the end of autumn now, arguably the best time of year for a relaxing walk to the pub.

Autumn is famous for its harvest times, turning leaves, cooling temperatures and darkening nights, which make it the ideal season for walks.

Wiltshire is renowned for its rich catalogue of country walks and cosy pubs. So with that in mind, we thought we'd do a round-up for you.
