Horton is a small Cotswold village lying on the slopes of the Cotswold Edge, straddling a country lane as it descends the hill. Much of the walk follows the Cotswold Way, which is picked up right from the start as it passes through the village. It immediately climbs to the top of the Cotswold Edge, where a new folly tower was built to mark the arrival of the new millennium. Continuing northwards along the Cotswold Way, the walk heads around Horton Court, built in 1140; this is one of the oldest rectories in England, now owned by the National Trust. To complete the circle, the walk descends back down and heads south through fields at the bottom of the Edge, bypassing Horton and going on to Little Sodbury, where the Cotswold Way can be picked up once again and followed back to Horton.

Very nice walk. Couple of detours for cows! Signs have been removed around the first farm and is a little confusing, but don't let that put you off.
