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.     

Beers on the Bus at the Kilcot Inn

Two miles west of Newent on the way to Gorsley in the Ross direction, the Kilcot Inn is one of the closest pubs to the route of the Daffodil Line – the bus stops are right outside the pub car park, on both sides of the road.  A pleasant and carefully restored building originating in the 17th Century, it has a characterful bright interior.
