Sat 26/01/2019, Winchcombe - Windrush Way - Roman Villa - Sudeley Castle - Winchcombe

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.

Sun 10/02/2019, Long Itchington - Stockton Locks - Bascote Locks

Easy 7 miles / 11.3 km

A leisurely walk from the interesting village of Long Itchington, a mixture of old and new, taking in a lengthy stretch of the Grand Union Canal from the Stockton Locks, continuing along to pass the Bascote flight. The atmosphere is peaceful and serene, the canal and locks, wide and the surrounding area, beautiful and rural. Boaters happily cruise their craft on their slow, unhurried journeys, a world away from the pressures they have left behind them for this slower pace of life. Eventually the canal is left behind for a bridleway, enclosed by trees, then a single-track road amidst lovely country scenes and finally, field-paths back to Long Itchington.
