Uley is an attractive Cotswold village tucked into a sheltered valley lying behind the steep Cotswold escarpment. In the early years of the industrial revolution, it was renowned for producing blue cloth, although there is no evidence of this today.

From Uley, the walk climbs up to Uley Bury, a long, flat-topped hill just outside and above the village. It is an impressive Iron Age hill-fort dating from around 300 BC, commanding spectacular views from the Cotswold escarpment over the Severn Vale. After encircling Uley Bury, the walk follows the Cotswold Way, descends the main Cotswold ridge, then climbs up and over the top of two outliers from the ridge: Cam Long Down, followed by Cam Peak. There are superb views back to the main ridge and Dursley, which the peaks overlook, and surrounding countryside.
