Cirencester Ramblers

July 12th Swinbrook

Six rambler had a delightful four mile walk in glorious sunshine starting at the Swan Inn, Swinbrook, passing through Swinbrook, and onto St Oswald’s Church (standing in the middle of meadows) and Widford. Crossing the tranquil River Windrush the walk continued south of the river, with a refreshment break by the cricket ground and then onto the village of Asthall.

After passing Asthall Manor and walking through the village, the ramblers turned towards Asthall Farm and on to Worsham.
Crossing back over the River Windrush and a short walk along the road brought the ramblers back on well worn paths through meadows and back to Swinbrook
