n 1937 the Pewsey White Horse was re-cut on the steep slope of Pewsey Hill replacing an earlier version from 1785.
The Pewsey Carnival was started in 1891 and is still flourishing culminating in a torch-lit procession the festival takes place between mid and late September. There is also the local Heritage Centre and a few long-standing buildings. Before you reach Pewsey at Wootton Lock you will have reached the summit of the K&A some 450 ft above sea level.
You can stock-up supplies as long as you can carry them back or get a lift shops and supermarket in Pewsey itself.
This stretch through largely rural area gives you a flavour of what life was like across much of the K&A when it originally opened.
