General:- This 6.3 mile is different from
others in Gloucestershire and I considered not including it because it's more
like walking in a park than normal outdoor walking in the Cotswolds. So why did
I include it? First it is flat, easy to follow & there are good views. Also, the paths are unlikely
to be muddy so you don't need boots. What's more, if the route is too long you
can take a short cut by turning right at waypoint 9 back to the start via Bell
Lane, ideal if you have children. The combination of these factors make this
route ideal for those new to outdoor walking and you will see many taking a
Sunday stroll. Because of the wide open spaces it is also a great place to
practice compass or GPS navigation. (GPS
length 4.3 miles). 2 Pubs on the route.
