A nice and easy little Cotswold walk around the small village of Brimpsfield, first of all taking a footpath towards the church to pass a castle site. A visit to the church could easily be incorporated. There follows a mixture of field-paths, bridleways and some road-walking in lovely countryside, circling round and back to Brimpsfield to get a glimpse of another part of the village.

When reaching point 3, the gate you need to go through to get on the 'walk between hedges' path is currently locked. The athletic of us can climb over it(steel 5-bar gate). Alternatively go over the stile next to the adjacent gate on the right of the locked gate into a field leading up to Hawcote Hill and then go sharp left to the road junction signed Caudle Green and rejoin the walk. After point 6 the road is quite busy, so you will spend a lot of time stepping back into the bushes to avoid cars, especially if you have dogs, until you leave the road at point 7.

1. Further to the comment by Geraldine Keeping about the trees in point 2, I'd advise keeping the overgrown hedge mentioned on your left, and taking a left through the gate at the end of the hedge at SO938133 (the footpath direction way-marker is no longer on the gatepost, though there are way-markers on the back of the post). Then walk diagonally across the field towards a stile (SO937134) which becomes visible as you reach the top of a small rise. This fits with the OS map field boundaries. 2. The gate at SO932135 (shown on the picture accompanying the walk description) has a cable/combination lock on it (and no way-mark indicator). It is necessary to climb over the gate. (At the end of the track, where it meets the road, there is a footpath sign pointing back along the track.)

Point 2. where it says...'Turn left to walk beside spinney and down into a valley bottom, following track round to keep trees on right' there are two sets of trees that you could keep to your right, ignore the first, larger set of trees, and continue forward so that you come to what is more like an overgrown hedge than large trees,and keep them on your right, otherwise you end up in the wrong field.
