Prinknash and Painswick

Back to Guided Walks page

Starting in the car park of the historic Prinknash Abbey we skirt the old Abbey with views over the Severn before meeting the Cotswold Way. We follow the CW as far as Painswick Beacon before returning through Pope’s Wood. Again some amazing views from the Beacon (weather permitting).


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
