Looking across the Painswick Valley to Hammonds Farm and Wickridge Hill

Bus stop at Whiteshill

Star Inn, Whiteshill

From the Whiteshill and Ruscombe village shop there is a path down through the fields to Ruscombe Farm. It passes a pond which was probably a mill pond for one of the five mills which were once on the Ruscombe Brook

This squeeze stile is very narrow

Looking back at Whiteshill

Harebells (and bluebells) are out

Looking over Archway School to Rodborough

Humphreys End House and Old Cider House

Park End

Crown Cottages – one is dated 1714

at the other end is the Old Crown Inn

Entrance to Field Place at Paganhill

The blossom is lovely
