9 miles

(CLOCKS CHANGE TODAY) A contrasting walk heading across the wide open fields from Tresham to the tranquil Cotswold village of Leighterton, stopping briefly at the church with its ANZAC links, then heading to Bowldown Farm (where the ANZAC airfield may have been). We then turn west to reach the hidden valley housing Lasborough Park which comprises two impressive country houses and a small church which featured in “Lark Rise to Candleford”. We then drop down the wooded valley to Ozleworth Bottom, passing the lovely Georgian Holwell Farm, before ascending back to Tresham.

Bring a packed lunch. After the walk we’ll go to a tea shop.
