17th January 2018                                           9.9 miles  map of route

We left half of the cars at Dyrham village, then all went to the Lansdown Park & Ride. It was a bright, breezy day with a good amount of sunshine, not bad for January.

We walked past the Race Course to join the Cotswold Way at Prospect Stile

The outskirts of Bristol

We were surprised to see these characters

By the golf course

We reach Hanging Hill

The flags commemorate the Batte of Lansdown Hill in the Civil War 1643

We read about the battle

Sir Brevil Greville’s Monument – he was one of the leaders who was killed, along with many others

The first snowdrops we have seen this year

We will walk by that lake

Through a ford

Some more characters in Greenway Lane

Cold Ashton

Cold Ashton Manor – built in the early 1600s – the steps were a good place for our picnic

Cold Ashton church

The end – Dyrham Village – is in sight

A new stone wall with seat

We have arrived!

The village of Dyrham

The Old School House

Then we had to drive back to Lansdown to fetch the other cars
