From Upton Inn car park we walk through the picturesque village of Upton Cheney and then follow footpaths to Beach before climbing Hanging Hill with magnificent views up the Severn Vale. we then follow the Cotswold Way around the edge of Lansdown Golf Course to Pipley Wood before descending to North Stoke and crossing Pipley Bottom back to Upton Cheney for lunch in the Upton Inn. Warden leaders will take all reasonable care and precautions but each walker is ultimately responsible for their own safety and for determining their capability to complete the chosen walk.
