Category:Pub Walks
Overview

'There are four circular walks which are colour coded, named (Hare, Gloucester Cattle, Skylark & Salmon) and are approximately 4.5 to 5 miles long, so allow about 2.5 hours for each one (or go crazy and do all four). The directions for all walks begin and end at the main map board, which is adjacent to the side wall of The Red Lion. All walks have kissing gates and bridges. It may be helpful to refer to the Ordnance Survey, Outdoor Leisure 14. What you see will vary from season to season. Some of the walks may be a little muddy at times but there will always be good cheer and hearty food and drink available back at The Red Lion when you return.'

Distance (miles)35
Overview

'Medium distance rambler’s route from Cranham to Wyck Rissington, via Cheltenham and Bourton. Each of these places has some association with the composer, and the broad stretch of Cotswold country between them was also well known to Holst, who records several pleasant days spent walking in the uplands and dales.' ALERT Details of the Route no longer seems accessible on the Holst Birthplace Museum Website; so I have replaced the Link with one to an outline PDF courtesy of LDWA.

Overview

'The Rivers Thames and Severn are once again connected - this time by footpath. The footpath, known the Thames & Severn Way, has been marked out by volunteers from the Cotswold Canals Trust. It mainly follows the towpaths of the Stroudwater Navigation and Thames & Severn Canal between Framilode and Lechlade, but in places deviates on to other rights of way, such as the Thames Path.'
