North Cotswolds villages.

A full compliment of 6 set off on a gloriously sunny October day along the Macmillan Way through to the golden stoned National Trust Tudor manor at Chastleton. Continuing on across the undulating hills to the village of Adelstrop, the village that inspired Thomas Edwards, WW1 poet, to write his famous, “Adlestrop” poem eulogising its peaceful, rural setting. The village also attracted a stay by Jane Austin in 1794. A few of us patronised the village shop with its well stocked ice cream cabinet.

On to Daylesford’s St. Peter’s Church, Pearson's important Gothic Revival building. Finally, we made our way back to the start via the lovely 'chocolate box' village of Cornwell for a well earned beverage at the 'Greedy Goose'.
