A Chedworth Circular

The lanes are quiet and narrow and this walk takes advantage of them. Basically it circles the hill on which Chedworth Wood stands, starting and finishing at the village inn.

You leave the inn at Chedworth and go uphill to the T-junction. Turn right and follow the lane up to a junction near the cricket field. Turn right at the next crossroads by the old airfield and follow the lane through the woods to another crossroads. A right turn here leads to the Roman Villa which I have included as part of the walk.

After a visit continue on lanes around the hill, passing Yanworth Mill and coming back by Lower Chedworth with its many pretty gardens.

6/4/16 The Seven Tuns is open again and there is now an excellent cafe at the Roman Villa. You don't need to pay for entry to use it.

I did this walk again today and sadly have to report that the Seven Tuns in Chedworth is now closed and has been for some time. It has been reported locally that residents are campaigning to save it but only time will tell if this proves successful. Without wanting to split hairs, the pub at Fossebridge (see comment below) is called The Inn at Fossebridge, not the Foresters Arms, but I agree it is worth a visit.

I did this walk today with friends, we altered the route after point 6, going along the footpath to rejoin the road between points 8 & 9 then carried on down past point 10 to the The Inn at Fossebridge in Fossebridge for lunch, a bit expensive but nice beers. We rejoined the route via the footpath to Lower Chedworth between points 10 and 11 and now totaling 8.6 miles. We enjoyed the walk and its magnificent views, ending for much needed fluid on a very hot day at the Seven Tuns now sold on by Youngs and now a freehouse for five weeks.

The Roman Villa at Chedworth is closed to the public from November to February inclusive but this walk is still well worth undertaking on its own merit. It features back country lanes that are even quieter out of season and is perfect for when the open countryside is soaked and unwalkable as it has been for much of this winter (2012/13). The route is relatively undemanding physically with such ascents as there are being fairly gentle. Attractions include a disused WW2 airfield, woodland, wildlife, rolling hills, river valleys, interesting buildings, attractive villages and the Seven Tuns which is Good Pub Guide listed and serves Youngs Bitter.
