Wiltshire - Avebury

Episode 3 of 6

Clare Balding is in Wilts with 'modern-day Troubadours' who, inspired by The Canterbury Tales, have been singing for their supper as they tramp the length and breadth of Britain.

Clare Balding explores walks that are good for the mind, body and soul.

Clare walks in Wiltshire with the 'modern-day Troubadours' who have been singing for their supper as they tramp the length and breadth of Britain. After studying The Canterbury Tales from his university desk, Will decided he needed to experience the route on foot, a journey that has now expanded to walking across Britain with school friends Ed and Ginger.

It is a full time expedition, in which they travel on foot and live outside, getting them right to the soul of the land. They hope the folk music of yesteryear they play will ancient rekindle memories and knowledge.
