Depart from the Bulford Kiwi out of Bulford Camp and get on the A3028 which almost immediately leads onto the A303, take an almost immediate right across the A303 and onto some minor roads to Allington where the A338 south can be picked up. Follow this until it joins the A30, at this roundabout follow signs to Laverstock the remains of the Panda are just before the village. Local details here. Return to the A30 and follow it west through Salisbury (take care it becomes part of the A36 for a stretch), and then Wilton where it is the A30 again, the first badge is Compton Chamberlayne and not easy to find, the Fovant Badges have a Layby to pull into from the A30 and Sutton Mandeville Badges a convenient pub car park can be used.

The three sets of badges are within a couple of miles of each other. The Pembroke Arms in Fovant is well recommended for both food and drink. From Sutton Mandeville return to Fovant and take the left turn in the village on minor roads to Dinton, and from Dinton to Wylye again on minor roads. At Wylye take the A36 north, take care the junction sends you south first. The Lamb Down Badge can be seen on the right a few miles out of Wylye and just before Codford St Mary. There is no parking or stopping points, and it can be missed so keep a look out.
