A beautiful longer walk starting from the Lansdown P&R site, walking along the ridge past Beckford’s Tower before dropping down to the Primrose Hill Community Woodland, hopefully we will meet someone from the Community to talk to us about the woodland. From there we continue down to the Cotswold Way and head towards Weston. A short walk through Weston before we start to climb up along the Cotswold Way towards Kelston Roundhill. We climb to the top of the Roundhill to take in the views to Bath, Bristol, the Mendips and the Welsh Hills in the distance. From Kelston Roundhill we re-gain the Cotswold Way and make our way to Prospect Stile from where we can look back at the route we’ve just walked. We continue along the Cotswold Way to Hanging Hill, where we see some of the work carried out by the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens. We stay on the Cotswold Way to reach the Grenville Monument, slightly re-tracing our footsteps we return across the Golf Course and make our way back towards the Park and Ride at Lansdown.

Suitable for older children.
