Selsley Common - Woodchester - Selsley Common

The walk starts from Selsley Common, 160 acres of hilltop land, where cattle are free to roam from April to October. There are extensive views over Stroud and the Cotsolds to the River Severn and Black Mountains. If you do the walk at a weekend, you are also likely to see paragliders launching off the top of the hill.

From the common, the walk descends to the attractive Cotswold village of Woodchester. After a gentle stroll through the village, passing the Royal Oak Inn where you can stop for a drink if you wish, you will climb back up into woodland, through several horse paddocks and on to Selsley Common.

A very pleasant short walk with some super views. When we did it (a Tuesday lunchtime in April) the Royal Oak Inn was shut, but the Ram Inn (also in Woodchester, 50 metres east of Waymark 10) was open and serves a wide range of food.
