Uley is a quiet, unspoilt village lying in a hidden valley on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment, which was a much busier place in the early years of the industrial revolution, when it was renowned for producing blue cloth.

The walk climbs slowly out of the valley along the edge of the woodland, with commanding views back towards Uley. Nympsfield lies at the top of the hill, another attractive Cotswold village. You may wish to call in at The Rose and Crown for refreshments and food. After taking in the village, the walk heads back down into the valley to Owlpen Manor, a small and picturesque manor-house just outside Uley, which dates from between 1450 – 1616. The best views of the house can be seen from footpaths in neighbouring fields that the walk follows.

There is a quick and easy return to Uley from here if you are looking for a shorter walk, but the route continues along the side of the valley and edge of woodland further before returning, which is well worth the extension to give wonderful views across the valley.
