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.

12 members drove to The Daneway Inn for a 7 mile ramble, led by Mary Saunders.  The route took in the village of Edgeworth with it’s church and Manor House.  Mary told us about the ‘Unwrapping of an Egyptian Mummy’ at Edgeworth Manor House in 1851.  An interesting tale!  We walked through woodland and meadows with some steep sections before walking up the valley opposite Pinbury Park House. The route eventually brought us back to Sapperton and then along the old canal side back to The Daneway.
