Amble through stunning woodlands and enjoy the nature (and maybe even a rope swing) we find along the way. With wildflower meadows and lots of local history we visit a recently uncovered Iron Age Fort and an ancient Cotswold stone quarry.
From the meeting point just outside of Wotton-Under-Edge, we amble through woodlands enjoying the nature we find along the way, and maybe even a rope swing. Eventually, we join a quiet path along the outer edges of Westridge Woods, with far reaching views across Spuncoombe valley
Following an uphill climb, the woods open up to a wildflower meadow, at the peak of which sits Tyndale Monument (known locally as Nibley Tower). This should interest fans of Horrible Histories, as there is a grisly tale that lies in wait about the terrible fate of the man the tower was built in honour of.
After lunch we make our back through Westridge Woods, this time joining the Cotswold Way. A popular trail, that leads us past a recently uncovered Iron Age Fort.
After exploring, we continue along the Cotswold Way until the woods open up again to bring us out to a spectacular view point at Wotton Trees. When ready we amble back past an ancient Cotswold stone quarry returning to our starting point.
This walk includes only one climb up from woods at the bottom of the valley to Tyndale monument, which is not too steep or long. This is not a race, and is designed to be climbed in sections, with resting periods. We class this is our easiest full day walk.
