Walk SAT 6 – Hills and Valleys Beyond Box

Dewscending into the By Brook Valley

A circular, undulating walk with lovely, varying views towards Bathford, Box, Kingsdown, Colerne, Rudloe and the By Brook Valley.

Our route follows field paths, descending to cross the Lid Brook before climbing up to Colerne.  As we cross the fields towards the Lid Brook, you will glimpse the tower of St John the Baptist Church in Colerne and further views behind and beside you of Box, Kingsdown and Rudloe.

Leaving Colerne, we return to Box, passing the long abandoned Drewetts Mill.

Please bring water and a picnic lunch.
