Walk posted on behalf of Jane from Kew

This is a short walk through classic Cotswold countryside, best taken at a relaxed pace. Jane will lead the walk and will have a map and directions with her. The rest of you just tag on behind and enjoy the lovely Cotswold scenery.
Lunch will be at the Lygon Arms in Broadway. Their bar and grill is open from 12 noon until 9-30 pm. tel: 01386-852255.
After your late lunch it's a bus back from Broadway to Moreton in Marsh for your train home - or if you want a longer walk, head back to Chipping Campden and catch a later bus from there - but I leave it to you to check out the later bus and later train times.
Enjoy a relaxing day - should be good - and should prove you don't always have to walk 14 miles to have a satisfying walk  !

This is really a treat, Jane. Normally Cotswolds walks are 15 miles plus and hard going. Thanks for designing a walk that is more manageable and with extra time to wonder in this lovely countryside....

Just the walk author on today's walk, so that is n=1. She tells me she enjoyed her day and did some additional research into the walk. Weather w=dry-at-the-start-but-damp-in-the-afternoon.
