This is a circular walk
Starting from the Swainswick layby, we climb Little Solsbury Fort, descending to St Catherine's Valley via Charmy Down, and ascending to Cold Ashton. Here we pick up a short section of the Cotswold Way through to Hanging Hill to admire the ongoing dry stone walling project, on to Beckford's Tower (more dry stone walling) and Hamiltion House (guess what! More dry stone walling plus a recently uncovered parish boundary stone). Return to the cars via Upper Swainswick. Just over 15 miles and 2200 ft ascent. Note that there is currently no pub stop.
Give us a try!
