Join us for coffee in the cafe at 10 am. The walk starts at 10:30 and takes us first to the Weighbridge Inn, before a steep climb to Hazel Wood and onto Avening via field footpaths. We return via a footpath through Longman's Farm.

Avening Church was established in 11th c. by Queen Matilda, wife of William the Conquerer. Gatcombe Park, home of the Princess Royal, is nearby.

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.
