Join the Cotswold Way to explore Wotton-Under-Edge and learn about a rich, local history from a your knowledgeable guide. This walk stays on pavements and stony tracks, for those without walking boots still interested to see some of the semi-rural countryside.
From our meeting point in Wotton-Under-Edge, we join the Cotswold Way to explore the village, passing by Isaac Pitman’s house (inventor of shorthand), before viewing the oldest almshouses in Wotton.
This is followed by a chance to see The Ram Inn, the oldest building in Wotton dates from 1145 and has a fascinating history including some macabre ghostly tales.
Back to the Cotswold Way, we amble along the stream side to Coombe, a pretty hamlet on the outskirts of the town.
Rejoining the road to Wotton, we see some more beautiful almshouses, before climbing to the Tabernacle, a church dating from the 18th century, built by a charismatic evangelist.
Wandering back to Wotton’s main high street, we pick up the Cotswold Way again briefly before stopping to enjoy the Tolsey clock before ambling back to our starting position.
This walk has one main uphill climb, and two very short uphill sections. This is not a race, and each climb upwards is designed to be taken in sections, with resting periods. We class this as an easy walk suitable for all abilities.
