Old Sodbury – Hawkesbury Upton Circular

Back to Guided Walks page

Walking North on the Cotswold Way, we cross the Hill Fort, and continue to Horton, thence to Hawkesbury Common. Turning East we climb to Hawkesbury Upton and join the Cotswold Way back to Horton. Please bring a packed lunch. Not suitable for pushchairs.

We traverse the Hill Fort at Little Sodbury and take little used paths via Horton Farm to the hamlet of Hawkesbury. On our return we enjoy elevated views over Horton Court and retrace much of our route back to Old Sodbury
