The Fosse Way which forms the border of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, is brilliant for mountain biking and walking. Built by the Romans to link Bath to Lincoln in virtually a straight line, the Fosse Way was 'designated a Royal Road in the twelfth century and was under the King's (Henry II) protection. By law, it had to be wide enough to allow two wagons to pass each other or sixteen armed knights to ride side by side' (source: Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir p122). It is a track nowadays that extends some three to four miles in each direction from the B4014 road that links Malmesbury to Tetbury and it provides some of the best off-road carriage driving routes in the country.
Water sports are available at the Water Park at South Cerney.
