Sunday 23rd October, 18 ramblers left Chedworth Old Airfield on a rather misty start for a 5.5 mile walk. Luckily not for too long as the sun broke through and then we could all enjoy the wonderful Autumn colours.
We first crossed the Airfield on a well marked track and continued onto an avenue of trees to come out alongside the Church and then followed a small path down to the Seven Tuns Pub. We then turned right to walk up the lane to meet the main road through Chedworth, soon taking the Lower Chedworth Road. We followed the lane all through the long village of Lower Chedworth which has many lovely cottages and houses with lovely gardens to look at. At the end of the village the lane bears left to take us up Pancake Hill, soon we could bear left again and walk up to the top and onto a track which gave us a wonderful view of Lower and Higher Chedworth on the other side of the valley. A coffee stop was taken here. We then continued along the track, where later we had views to our right looking over towards Andoversford. This track took us all the way back to the Airfrield and our cars.
