Overview

Garway Hill Common is ancient common land with wild horses and plenty of wild life. An old WW2 radio tracking station is at the top with extensive 360 degree views. We ascend to Garway Hill via quiet roads and fields and return mostly via fields. Enroute we will call in at an intersting church established by the Knights Templar.
