Easy 7 miles / 11.3 km

An easy walk except for the climb up Coles Hill and the walk through Spooney Wood, which may be muddy after rain. Winchcombe is one of the most interesting of the Cotswold villages / towns. There are many interesting streets and shops. The stone has some of the warmth of the north Cotswold stone and plenty of character. There are many photo opportunities here for architecture and wildlife. The mosaic tiles in the ruins of the Roman villa are well worth seeing and the views are great.This walk was originally listed as being on Saturday.  It is actually on Sunday.
