Details of the walk:

After a bus ride to Hawkesbury Upton, we set off down to Hawkesbury to see the old church. We then head up and over to Hillesley and on to Wortley where we join the Cotswold Way to climb up to Newark Park and then down into Combe – our spot for lunch. After our rest we will follow the old London Road before heading across to Ridings Wood and down to Waterley Bottom to pick up the Lantern Way route. A last climb through Ashen Plains Wood leads us into further woodland walking for our return down to Dursley centre.

The route has some great scenery, including a great view towards the River Severn framed by the Cotswold Hills. The route passes several impressive and historic buildings.
