Details of the walk:

Our transport will take us to The Hunters Hall pub at Kingscote where we will set off down the Ozleworth Valley. After climbing up to Newark Park we then walk down to Combe before climbing back up to follow the ridge looking over Wootton. We continue through the woods to Brackenbury Ditches and then follow the Cotswold Way to Nibley Monument. After enjoying the views we head downhill to Forthay and on to pick up the Cotswold Way again leading to a final climb up and over Stinchcombe Hill to return to Dursley centre.
This walk has great views all the way and a total ascent of about 1,650 feet.

There is additional parking today for this walk in the nearby Community Centre car park.

Special areas of interest:
Ozleworth House and Lake, Newark Park House, Brackenbury Ditches fort, Robert Raikes Monument.
