Map to start point:
This is a mix of field walking (there are stiles to cross); it can be muddy and slippy if wet, and some urban terrain, exploring the waterways of Cam and Dursley and how they have shaped the growth of a settlement and provided for industry. There is significance in the 8km length of the route as in the developing world this is the average distance people have to walk to access a clean water point and this was the focus of this year’s Christian Aid appeal back in May 21. There are some interesting historical facts to uncover along the way about the importance that water has had on the local history and growth of this area. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the climate change pressures that we are seeing not just locally but globally. We will have a 30 minute break in Dursley to have refreshments and a comfort break, before completing the Dursley loop of the walk and finishing at Broadwell.
