Going back in Time

Climbing from Winchcombe past Sudeley Castle and along the valley of Beesmoor Brook, then up into woods and combes, with views unfolding across the Wolds to Belas Knap. A gentle downhill return to Winchcombe. The first half of the walk is energetic but with views unfolding all the time until the long barrow at Belas Knap is reached. The return is much easier!
Start Point : Winchcombe Back Lane Car Park (pay and display).
