The route of today’s walk was scheduled to be only 5?? miles but we decided that this was too short, given the continuing good weather, and we made an unplanned extension. It was only when we had completed the walk that we discovered that the revised route was 9?? miles with 1,340ft of ascent.
The walk started at Seven Springs just south of Cheltenham. This is the source of the River Churn, a tributary of the Thames. Our route took us past Cowley Manor and included sections of the Gloucestershire Way and the Cotswold Way from where we had great views over Cheltenham & Cleeve Hill.
