A lovely spring day for a walk which involved lots of hills giving clear and far reaching views.  The walk started from Upper Swainswick and took in much of the Upper Lambrook Valley. The village of Woolley has an interesting church (Grade 1 listed) built by John Wood the Younger with an unusual cupola as shown in the photo below. After a few more hills and fields it was across the A46 where there were good views of St Catherine’s Valley and Monkswood reservoir. The walk then continued across Charmy Down – a former RAF station with its many abandoned buildings hinting at a bygone age –  and back under the A46 to the start.
