Evesham & District

Walks over 4 Miles - Group 3

FRIDAY 26 JULY 2019 ADLESTROP & DAYLESFORD
Start time 10.00am
Led by John & Mary 01789 491148

This 5¼ mile walk takes us south through Adlestrop. After gently climbing through woodland we follow the contour past grazing race horses. We pass around Daylesford Park and to the 1880’s estate village of Daylesford and a churchyard where the 2nd Viscount Rothermere lies. Crossing the railway by bridge we reach Lower Oddington. For a short distance we walk alongside the A436, recrossing the railway at the site of the former station. PLEASE NOTE: this is a fast road, with trucks and a narrow footpath so great care will be needed. We finally return across Adlestrop Park, past the well kept cricket club and down through the village.

Directions
To travel to Adlestrop head from Evesham to Stow on the Wold and then take the A436 to Chipping Norton. Immediately after crossing a railway bridge take the almost hidden left turn to Adlestrop and follow the route when it turns right at a T junction. Parking is at the Village Hall in Adlestrop, across the road from a bus shelter with the village nameplate. A nearby post code is GL56 0UN. Parking is limited so please try and car share.

TUESDAY 30 JULY 2019 SHERBORNE & WINDRUSH
Start time 10.00am
Led by John & Mary 01789 491148

Group 3 members are welcome to join a few from Group 2 on one of our 5th Tuesday walks. It is a little longer and a little further away, including both morning and afternoon. Don’t forget to bring your picnic and plenty to drink.

The walk starts at the National Trust car park in Sherborne Park on a broad ridge overlooking Sherborne Brook and offering fine views. The first and last parts of the walk are through well wooded slopes of Sherborne Park. In between there is attractive walking across the River Windrush’s lush water meadows, with delightful flora, butterflies and birds; a summer time naturalists paradise. In addition to distant countryside views we walk through the delightful villages of Sherborne and Windrush and have the opportunity to visit a particularly interesting church in Windrush.

The walk duration is 8.6 miles and there is a total ascent of 614ft. but with only a couple of noticeable slopes. Allowing for picnic and viewing stops we would expect to be back at the cars around 3.00pm.

Directions
Parking - use the Ewepen car park, postcode GL54 3DT. The best route from Evesham is A44 to Stow on the Wold, then A429 southwards to just before Northleach. At roundabout take the A40 left (eastbound) and after 2.8 miles take a left turn (Signpost Sherborne). Car park is after 200 metres on right hand side. Allow 50 minutes for the trip and car share if possible. The car park is free to National Trust members and £3 for others, so bring your NT card with you or hop into a car with someone who has one.

The next walk for Group 3 is on FRIDAY 23 AUGUST 2019 - details to follow
