Details of the walk:

This walk starts from Cam & Dursley Railway Station allowing walkers using transport links from farther afield to join the walk.

The walk heads along attractive lanes to the north of Cam before we gradually climb up to enjoy the fabulous views from the top of Cam Peak and Cam Long Down. We then descend along the Cotswold Way to the centre of Dursley where we will have, at least, a 30 minute stop for lunch (bring your own packed lunch or have a snack/drink in one of the cafes/pubs in the centre). After lunch we will head up the Cotswold Way to Stinchcombe Hill where we can enjoy great views to Nibley Monument and south to the Severn road bridges. We then continue down to the pretty village of Stinchcombe before passing through the fields leading back to Cam where we will make our way, in part, alongside the River Cam back to the Station.

The walk will commence after the 10.11am train from Bristol has arrived, so that’s likely to be around 10.15am

Special areas of interest:
The walk visits the tops of Cam Peak, Cam Long Down and Stinchcombe Hill providing some of the best views in the Cotswolds. The walk passes through the grounds of Piers Court – former home of Evelyn Waugh at the time he wrote Brideshead Revisited.
Additional items you need to bring on this walk:
A packed lunch and something to drink. A camera.
Additional costs required:
We are stopping for lunch in Dursley Town Centre where there is the option to have lunch/a drink at one of the cafes/pubs, if you would prefer this to carrying a packed lunch.
