We start on the Cotswold Way, passing through beech woods and limestone meadow up to Uley Bury via Coaley Peak Viewpoint. Returning via Nympsfield and Woodchester Park we will be escorted across the 'live' airfield. Lunch available at the cafe after the walk or bring a picnic lunch.

Please park considerately as the airfield will be in operation. It will be helpful if we can inform the cafe of numbers who will take lunch there after the walk. This may be done on the day, before starting out. Uley Bury is the site of an ancient hill fort. At Coaley Peak there is a neolithic long barrow, which is one of the earliest examples of a barrow with separate chambers.


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.
