A circular walk along the wooded slopes of the Cotswold Escarpment from picture perfect Winchcombe. The walk heads out of town on the Wardens Way passing Sudeley Castle (burial place of Catherine Parr, Henry VIII’s 6th wife) before climbing steadily and then following the contour northwards to join part of the Cotswold Way. Heading down towards Wood Stanway, we return on the Winchcombe Way, passing the ruins of Hailes Abbey (free entry for NT and English Heritage members).
Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and plenty to drink.
