Yellow fields at Hammond’s Farm, looking towards Callowell

and Whiteshill

The yellow is not buttercups

We didn’t go up to the white field to see what that was

This is similar to a walk we did four years ago, but in the opposite direction.

We walked to Salmon Springs, then up to Callowell, through the fields past Stokenhill to Pitchcombe.

Brown’s Hill Court is across the Painswick Valley in Wick Street

We didn’t spot this window when we walked in the other direction

For photos in Pitchcombe village – see below

We went down and up Wade’s Lane, passing the mill house and then back to Stroud along Wick Street

Pitchcombe church was rebuilt in 1819, and enlarged in 1870. It was built on the site of a church erected in 1327. It is next to the Village Hall, which was the village school, built 1803. Nearby is Wragg Castle Farm, which maybe the site of the 12th century “Ragged Castle”. The church is out of the village, but near where the castle once was.
