“This figure-of-eight walk has a gentle morning and a tough afternoon! A morning meander through thick woods and by ornamental lakes of Woodchester Park, eventually returns to Coaley Peak car park for a snack break. Then south, rollercoastering along the Cotswold Way with spectacular views of the Severn Vale and Welsh hills. Round Uley Bury hill fort before dropping steeply to Uley for lunch. The return route is direct and has a steep ascent to Nympsfield.”
