Around The Dursley Downs

Back to Guided Walks page

The walk takes paths around the hillsides of Cam Peak, Long Down and Downham Hill and explores the centres of Dursley and Upper Cam. We pass through the redeveloped Lister Engineering site with its newly revealed sections of the River Cam. The walk has several moderate climbs and great views.

The walk will include a coffee stop on top of Downham Hill to take in the panoramic views.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (07841 663607) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
