Walking from the parish church of Hailes to visit Didbrook, Stanway and Toddington in the heart of the splendid Cotswolds, this is a venture of interest and discovery. The villages each have their own appeal, the Gloucestershire and Warwick Railway never far away with its own distinctive sounds reminiscent of a bygone age. A few extra yards off the route into Toddington reveals a cathedral-like church, large and splendid with a mighty tower, the ruins of Toddington House standing behind it, and the grand and beautiful Toddington Manor nearby. Used as a college in recent years, the manor now stands empty. The last part of the walk follows the railway where magnificent steam trains run regularly at week-ends, an exciting spectacle these days.
