Upper Swainswick to Dyrham - A wandering route! (National Trust Walking Festival )

This Linear walk has three climbs, but the views are worth it! It is not suitable for pushchairs and is possibly too long for families unless they are used to this distance. Please do turn up if you book, even if the weather turns wet as we have to hire the minibus and have no reserves! There is no charge for parking at Dyrham for those coming on the walk. National Trust Cafe and shop by the house at the end.LATE NEWS 19th Sept: Places still available if you are happy to car share. Warden Leaders will take all reasonable care and precautions but each walker is ultimately responsible for their own safety, and for determining their capability to complete the chosen walk
Start Point : Visitor Reception, Dyrham Park
