Winchcombe Welcomes Walkers

3 02 2019

Winchcombe is a ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town and it holds an annual walking festival in May. The organisation has a great website: https://www.winchcombewelcomeswalkers.com/

The website has details of 22 walks with maps and clear instructions that all start in Winchcombe.  They are checked and updated on a regular basis. We have laminated copies of these walks in the Barn and occasionally we walk some of them ourselves!

They are separated into circular, linear, bus and train walks. We always enjoy walking up to Cleeve Hill and back but it is also possible to catch the bus up and walk on Cleeve Hill before picking a route back to Winchcombe (see the last post).  You can get food and drink at Cleeve Hill golf course.

On Monday, it was cold but gloriously sunny so we decided to walk up Langley Hill. Days like these make retirement such a bonus! We were using Walk 4 which gave us some great views in all directions as you can see below.  We just made it back before the large black clouds covered the town.
