General information

A short, gentle walk to round off GOC’s 2021 AOG.

The Walk starts in the pastoral hamlet of Cold Aston in the heart of the Cotswolds Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is close to the medieval wool merchant town of Northleach and the charming Villages of Bourton-on-the-Water and the Slaughters. Cold Aston was first recorded in the Domesday book and possibly dates back to Roman times where it may have acted as a resting point for legions travelling on the Fosseway.

A winding, ancient drover’s way takes us to Turkdean and then along a gentle sloping valley bottom and over its watershed to Notgrove. Both of which are typical Cotswold chocolate box hamlets. From here we pass through a grove of beech trees, possible used as a gallop in days gone by, before we return to our starting point.
