A moderate walk through the hidden, autumnal gems of the Cotswolds.
Starting at the Cotswold, chocolate box village of Lower Slaughter, we make our way along the river Eye, up and its watershed to the river Windrush to wend our way between the winding Windrush and the line of the Beeching axed, Cheltenham railway line. Over the Naunton Golf Course returning to the valley floor at Naunton’s beautiful Dovecote. A lunch break in Naunton will be taken, either here at the Dovecote, or for those who would like to imbibe, The Black Horse Inn.
Gathering at the Black Horse we rise up over watershed again to return to the river Eye, following it along through firstly Upper Slaughter and returning to our starting point at Lower Slaughter.
