Walking in good company

If this is the year you plan to get out of the house and spend more time getting some fresh air and exercise there is plenty of opportunity in our local countryside – and many enthusiastic local groups here to help you and keep you company along the way.

A Daffodil Walk: Newent to Dymock

This walk follows the old canal from Newent to Oxenhall, and picks up the Daffodil Way at Four Oaks for the last part of the walk. It finishes at Dymock, an easy 5.5 mile walk which includes field paths with a small number of stiles, back lanes and woodland tracks.

walks with the bus: Hilltop to gorsley

Hill Top aptly describes the starting point of this 4-mile walk through to Gorsley, and a fine walk it is. It captures a range of landscapes from parkland, orchards and pastures as well as amazing views across to May Hill, the Malverns and Black Mountains. There are also a number of fascinating features such as the fine sculptures at Hartleton Water, truly magnificent yews lining the path to Linton Church and apple orchards throughout.  It ends at Gorsley opposite Goff’s School, near to the Roadmaker Inn where there are bus stops and seats to rest awhile.
