A46(T) Picnic Area – West Littleton – Dyrham – Cotswold Way – A46(T) Picnic Area
A gentle route of lanes, bridleways and field-paths is enlivened by a visit to a magnificent National Trust property.
The walk starts at the picnic area off the A46 trunk road south of the M4 Junction 18. It follows a green lane and a bridleway to reach the tiny village of West Littleton, boasting a 13th Century bellcote. Striking due west across fields leads to Dyrham Park, a baroque pile built for William IV's Secretary of State William Blathwayt, who also laid out the parkland which is nowadays a deer-park.
Information for Dog Owners: there are liable to be sheep and cattle on the route, therefore dogs should be on a leash.
