March Ramble, Coates – Tarlton

Thursday 23rd March
Ramblers Group

Coates – Tarlton

led by Mary Saunders (see a copy of the poster here)

A fairly comfortable ramble both in distance and terrain. We will go over the railway to Coates Church and meander through the woodland eventually picking up the path towards Tarlton and back down the slope to the pub.
Lunch after at The Tunnel House, menu choices to be made at the pub before setting off. (There is a website for a preview but menus were not up-to-date).

After a wet start to the morning, we were lucky that the rain had stopped and the sun came out during the morning.  We walked 4.5 miles from Tunnel House, near Coates, across fields and along muddy woodland paths eventually picking up part of the Macmillan Way until we reached the village of Tarlton.  We had a look inside the tiny little church there, before returning across the fields to the pub which provided some excellent food.

February Ramble, Woodchester – Selsley

Thursday 23rd February
Ramblers Group

Woodchester – Selsley

led by Allison Hope (see a copy of the poster here)

Our February ramble was a 5 mile walk starting in North Woodchester.  We walked through fields and woodland leading up on Selsley Common, where the strong winds from ‘Storm Doris’ made the going quite difficult, until we descended again through the Vineyards leading down to Woodchester Park and South Woodchester.  From there we returned to our starting point and then drove back to the Britannia Inn, Nailsworth for our lunch.

This 7.2 mile ramble was led by Mike and Isobel, and the route took us from the Tipputs Inn, across fields to Beverston where we saw the castle and church. We returned via Chavenage, and we were lucky to have a dry if breezy morning which was perfect for our walk.
The next ramble will be in February next year.

On a dry, mild but misty morning, 16 members drove to Wotton-under-Edge for a 5 mile ramble.  We walked down through the town and out in the direction of Coombe where we joined the Cotswold Way.  One very steep climb led us up to the hilltops above the hamlet of Wortley, and then downhill through wooded paths and open fields before returning to the town and our lunch at The Royal Oak.
