A series of short but sharp ascents and descents, Neolithic burial chambers, and Iron Age hill forts highlight the short six miles to the village of Dursley. Climb steeply to the Tyndale Monument, built in memory of writer William Tyndale who finished translating the New Testament bible into English in 1525.

Finish this longer day in the lovely little town of Wotton-under-Edge, which blends both the old and new. Visit the Heritage Center in town for insight into the towns unique history, or take a wander down the high street to an array of small independent shops.
