Sunday October 18th 2015: Cotswolds near Hunters' Hall

This was Walk Club 15, meeting at Hunters' Hall between Dursley and Tetbury. We had a great walk through typical Cotswold scenery; limestone again but a different type and a different landscape to the previous post.

A dry valley, probably cut by a meltwater stream flowing across frozen bedrock at the end of the Devensian ice-age; the stream would have disappeared as the frozen ground melted and the rock regained its permeability.

Newington Bagpath church, now undergoing some restoration; I can remember finding it abandoned 40 years ago, on a visit with my parents on a family holiday in Gloucestershire.
