On a lovely morning we parked opposite these houses in Avening and walked to Cherington.

Opposite the bottom of Tetbury Hill, is a Gothic stone memorial to William Fowles  (1835-1896).

We went to look for the ‘Roundabout’ marked on the map – it is a circle of trees:

At the hamlet of Nag’s Head is the former Nag’s Head InnIt has very fancy decoration – The holes in the carving formed entrances to beehives set between the ceiling and first floor of the old pub.

Where the pub sign used to hang

Reflections in the stream

Cherington pond was dug in the mid 18th century

And reflections in puddles


Lots of berries

Cherington Village Green

Drinking-fountain, 1875


The Drivers Charity Houses were rebuilt in 1829

Cherington Park

The church of St. Nicholas –  a building started in the 12th century

How do we get through this gate, without letting the horses out?

Back to Nag’s Head

At the bottom of Hampton Hill, Avening

Cross Inn, an 18th century building recorded as an inn since 1856.

Now called Queen Matilda

It was a lovely walk and we saw wonderful reflections
