Overview

The  small village of Cranham in the Cotswolds, surrounded by some of the finest of the Cotswold Beechwoods. A seasonal  theme for this walk that follows in part the Cotswold Way in a circular route via lanes, track and field paths that takes in the village of Cranham with its links to composer Gustav Holst. Expect moderate undulations as we explore the countryside that is said to have inspired Holst ( himself a keen walker) when he set to music a poem by Christina Rossetti, now a popular Christmas Carol. Leader will be going direct to walk start point, please check with me due to possible road closures if going direct yourselves.

Walk starts 10am from Fiddlers Elbow car park, GL4 4ET.  A46 Painswick road.
