As me and Julie were having a 4 day break in the Cotwold's i phoned Brian (Cotswolds Stroller) to see if he fancied meeting up for a walk so he organised a meet up to see if anybody else fancied meeting up and Alan,Paul and Fiona joined us in Snowshill for a lovey walk on a glorious sunny,warm day.Starting from the Snowshill Arms we headed off across field's to Lidcombe Wood.
Leaving the wood we walked along the B4077 for a short stretch before picking up the Cotswolds Way and passing through this prnate kissing gate.
Next we passed Stanway House,seen below.
The Jacobean Gatehouse built around 1630.
We grabbed a quick break before pressing on to Stanton where we took a detour to have a cider in the Mount Inn,which has a great view over the Vale of Evesham,seen below.
Leaving the village we passed the stables and paddocks which were a hive of activity on this sunny day before eventually reaching Laverton.
A short walk to the next beautiful village of Buckland.
The route back to Snowshill was pleasant,at first on a track and then across field's to round off a great walk.
Today's walk was 8.5 mile long with 1,300 feet of ascent.
