Above and Below the Escarpment

Back to Guided Walks page

We follow the Coffin trail to Horton and then across fields to Inglestone Common before climbing to Hawkesbury Upton, with the Escarpment on our right. The Cotswold Way takes us back, keeping mostly to the high ground. Please bring a picnic lunch.

The flat farm land of the Severn Vale should have dried out by April so the mud should have dried up! Some stiles except on the Cotswold Way. Not suitable for pushchairs
