Moderate 5 miles / 8.1 km
This varied walk takes you to Purton and Lydiard Millicent, passing through farms and small hamlets.
We head towards Washpool and then follow paths across fields to reach Purton to enjoy views over Purton Manor, built in 1810, and St Mary's Church, which is one of only 3 churches in England to have both a tower and a spire.
We will cross the fields to Lydiard Millicent and along to Parkside Farm where we pick up a field path back to the park.
