This is a 3 mile circular walk from the Cotswold village of Chedworth in Gloucestershire. The route passes Chedworth Roman Villa, one of the grandest country houses of fourth century Roman Britain. The site was discovered in 1864 and is now administered by the National Trust. (If you wish to visit, entrance fees apply and assistance-dogs only welcome within the site). A modern conservation building provides exceptional access to the extensive mosaic floors, hypocaust systems and bathhouse rooms. A small museum houses a range of finds and artefacts from the villa.

Although short, the walk is quite strenuous as there are some steep inclines along the way. There are several gates and stiles to negotiate and you may come across sheep or other livestock. Refreshments are available at the pub in Chedworth as well as at the Roman Villa. Allow 1.5 hours.

The walk starts outside St. Andrew's Church in Chedworth, post code GL54 4AD. Parking is available in the lane outside the church (Church Row).
