Route Description for Kingley Vale and the Devil Humps Walk
The Kingley Vale and the Devil Hump’s Walk takes you through the King’s Graves (Devil Humps) and has an incredible history, including the auxiliary units of World War II. Beginning at the West Stoke car park, follow the path through the woodland until you reach the King’s Graves. Take time to explore this area as some of the graves need a keen eye to see. The sheep that used to live in this area used to take care of the graves by grazing; however, since they have left, volunteers take turns cutting away the shrubs that now grow around them. Continue on the path and take in the beautiful views that surround you. You will then arrive back from where you came from as this is a circular path.
