Details of the walk:

Our transport will take us to Arlingham where we set off to climb Barrow Hill, our only climb of the day, before heading for the River Severn. We then walk via Saul Junction alongside canals, rivers and lakes to arrive at Frampton Court grounds for lunch. After we head off through Oak Wood to pick up the River Cam which we then follow, as best we can, through Cambridge, Coaley and Cam back to Dursley Town Centre.

Special areas of interest:
River Severn, Saul Junction, River Frome and disused canal, Frampton Court, Canalised River Cam, Mills at Coaley and Cam, Rackleaze Nature Reserve, re-opened River Cam through former Lister site.
