Tetbury is a beautiful Cotswold town, with origins going back to the 7th Century, a haven for antiques shops and with a skyline dominated by the spire of the magnificent parish church, the fourth highest in England. It was an important market town for the Cotswolds wool trade - many of the wool merchants' houses still look as they did 300 years ago. The Market House dominates the centre of the town. Built in 1655 and supported on three rows of bulging stone pillars, it was designed for the sale of wool and yarn and is still used as a market today.

As well as exploring the town, the walk takes you through Preston Park just outside Tetbury, on to the small village of Long Newnton and then into horse country, through the parkland of the Estcourt Estate, which is now owned by a Saudi Arabian prince and run as a stud farm.

An excellent walk through lovely countryside, and an estate with some of the best countryside stewardship it's possible to see! Well maintained and well signed paths throughout. A short diversion to Shipton Moyne also means you can visit the Cat & Custard Pot for a drink and/or food.
