Wander through valleys filled with aged mills and pleasant streams along the path to Hawkesbury Upton. It is easy to appreciate the evidence of the once prosperous wool manufacturing that support the region’s growth. Continue onward to enjoy walks through isolated rural villages, and soak in the tranquility of the walk into Old Sodbury.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

This stretch is pleasant because it almost always travels through rolling pasture land and by farm houses and villages which is a welcome break from previous day's which were often going through very large tracts of woodland without views apart from an occasional vista. One of the nicest days of the walk Despite being lower, the views were really good. No need to go up high.
