Tytherington is a small village near Thornbury which is surrounded by several disused quarries. The circular walk starts from the village, heading over Tytherington Hill and passing the remains of one of these quarries, now covered in woodland.

The walk then heads onto the Tortworth Estate, which is a huge estate that has been privately owned since 1620 and includes 450 acres of woodland. Parts of the estate are now enclosed within the grounds of a hotel and Leyhill Prison, but there is still plenty open to the public that is well worth exploring. A circular walk around Tortworth Lake, at the heart of the estate, can also be included in the walk. It is normally closed to the public, but opened up on the first Sunday of every month from February to October.
