The walk started out at the Cotswold Outdoor Centre on a bright frosty morning, with good a turnout of 25 members and two guests. We followed the Thames and Severn Canal path to the old canal Roundhouse and turned right into Cerney Wick. Walking across fields and crossing a lane we passed through 2 kissing gates, then around the edge of a beautiful lake.
We continued down a few steps and across a bridge and into another field and then turned onto the disused railway line and past the gravel works. This took us to the Spine Road, which we crossed and continued along the railway line into South Cerney. We turned right down a path which leads to Bow Wow, a lovely path with water on both sides. Turning right through South Cerney, we returned to the railway line until we reached a bridge. Climbing up the steps onto the road and turning left to reach the canal path once again, we continued along beside the canal until we arrived back at the start.
A frosty start on a bright winter's morning
Who lives in houses like these?
We make our way around a lake on the edge of South Cerney
The low winter sun on the sailing lake
Woof Woof or is it Bow Wow in South Cerney!
