Welcome to the Churchdown u3a

Churchdown is located in a semi-rural environment, halfway between Gloucester and Cheltenham, and is surrounded on three sides by open countryside. A local landmark is Churchdown Hill (also known locally as Chosen Hill), which rises to 155 metres (510 ft) above sea level and has views across the Severn Vale and to the Cotswolds, Gloucester, Cheltenham, the Malvern Hills, and into Worcestershire. The hill is home to the historic sites of Mussell Well, the "Roman" Steps and St. Bartholomew's Church.
