Weekday walks

Join the Gloucestershire Walking Group group for a 8.0 mile moderate walk.

Meet 9.45am for 10am start in rear car park of the Royal William pub, Cheltenham Road, Cranham, Painswick GL6 6TT.

A walk to help walk off the Christmas pudding, about 8 miles around Cranham and the surrounding area where drinks will be available not just at the end but we will also stop at different pubs for coffee and for snacks / lunch. The Royal William will be serving meals at the end.
The trail is likely to be be very muddy in the odd place.
For anyone wanting to come by bus, the 61 bus which runs between Cheltenham Promenade and Stroud stops outside the Royal William. 

For those coming by car, please park at the back of the car park behind the pub. The landlord specifically asks that people do not park in the car park opposite the pub to avoid people thinking the pub is full.
