Cirencester Ramblers

July 16th Sherston

 

On 16th July 16 people set off from Sherston to do a 6.5 mile circular walk. Leaving the wide High Street they passed The Rattlebone Inn and turned right. A little way down the hill they took a flight of steps and continued along a path behind some houses. Crossing a field with a very friendly horse they reached a lane and soon crossed the River Avon to walk uphill through a wood. The route continued through Pinkney Park. They then walked across a field of lively bullocks viewing Easton Grey House in the distance. On reaching the village they stopped for a coffee stop next to the weir and some pretty cottages.

Leaving the village they found an overgrown path that led down to the river and a footbridge. This led onto the Fosseway, which they followed for about a mile. The walk continued along paths eventually reaching a racehorse gallop before continuing along lanes back into Sherston.
