Section 25: Cirencester to Tetbury: John and Jean
A great walk on a warm sunny day


The Royal Agricultural College on route
This is a lovely setting and was quiet during the Summer Holidays

The entrance to the Sapperton Tunnel

This tunnel is the third longest in the country and is cared for by the Cotswolds Canals trust

Rodmarton Church

We stopped here for a short break over looking the green, with the Church behind us, a beautiful setting

A World War 2 Pill Box

"In this corner you will notice, incongruously placed, a World War II pill box. Hardly in a commanding position, this must have been one of the 'cosiest posting in the UK for I doubt if your own side would have found it, let alone the enemy!"

 This note is taken from Trevor Antill Book 2, The Cotswolds, the Mendips and the Sea.

Trevor's Boots in Tetbury, we had a short break before taking the Bus back to Cirencester
Section 26: Tetbury to Tresham John and Jean

A rather damp start as we encountered foggy conditions on the way to Tetbury, however it soon cleared and sun appeared.

Westonbirt Arboretum

Although it was early September, there are still signs of the leaves turning.

Section 27 Tresham to Chipping Sodbury and Section 28 Chipping Sodbury to Wick, John, Jean and Brian

John and Brian at the start, we had a long day planned, expecting to cover just over 18 miles. It was a later start than  expected as Brian hit really bad traffic through Bath on his way to Tresham

The view across from Tresham, with our first target the Somerset monument just visible on the skyline in the distance
A brand new finger post at Horton Court

Horton Court is a Tudor manor house - though the oldest part dates from Norman times. It was built by the Bishop of Bath and Wells (William Knight) who was a delegate to the Pope for Henry VIII in his attempts to obtain a divorce from Catherine of Aragon. The poperty is owned by the National Trust.

Laughing We stopped here for our lunch break which we needed as the paths were rather wet after all the heavy rain.

Wick Quarry

Trevor's notes in Book 2 describe this as a working quarry and indeed it was only a year or so ago. The area in the bottom was being worked with huge wagons moving to remove stone. This was only made possible through extensive pumping operations which have now stopped.  The lower areas are now flooded with at least 50 feet of water in places (a very dangerous place to be).
