Wessex Ridgeway Guidebooks
Disappointingly, The Greater Ridgeway (which includes the Wessex Ridgeway) by Ray Quinlan (Cicerone) is unavailable. The publisher’s website page for it is Cicerone Wessex Ridgeway
Feel free to let Cicerone know how in demand this excellent guidebook is! We include it in the slideshow below in case it is available from third parties. We also include other out-of-print guidebooks that cover part of the route.
Dorset Council has a good downloadable guide, but it covers the Dorset section only, and maps are definitely required: The Wessex Ridgeway in Dorset
Wiltshire Council has footpaths info on its website: Wiltshire Council walks

We display the Ordnance Survey “Explorer” maps at 1:25,000 scale which cover the Wessex Ridgeway route, and we display the standard quality, although the the tougher all-weather type is also available (though not always as up to date). The path is marked by name on all `Explorer’ maps.
