Doynton – 13.8.17

August 13, 2017 at 4:54 pm

A 5.5 mile walk starting and ending in Doynton

This walk started from the car park of the sadly closed pub in Doynton and went through woods and fields before skirting Dyrham Park and heading back to Doynton. The steep hills were well worth the effort as, combined with glorious weather, the reward was far reaching views stretching as far as the Severn bridge.
