A picture postcard walk including some of the Cotswold Way in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From Dover's Hill, site of the Cotswold Olimpicks since 1622 (including shin-kicking, morris dancing and tug-of-war!) we walk along the Cotswold Way, south-east to Chipping Campden and south-west to Broadway Tower. We then descend north-west to Broadway for sandwiches and a pub stop. The return is mostly north-easterly over gentle hills and through fields and woodland with views into Worcestershire over the Vale of Evesham.
