LittleWalks5 Little Cotswolds Walks by RR Gordon
Book 5. The Falcon, Painswick

You might have thought it would be difficult to find five completely different walks straight from the front door of the same pub, but this is Painswick. It sits on the saddle between two valleys which merge and then meander down to Stroud; a little way north there is Painswick Beacon with views across the Severn plain stretching across to the Black Mountains in Wales and just to the east you can find Cider With Rosie country: the beautiful Slad Valley which was so lovingly brought to the nation's attention by Laurie Lee.

This booklet contains walks along the picturesque floor of the Painswick Valley - both north to Cranham and south past Whiteshill - along with a climb up to the windswept Painswick Beacon (via the less travelled route!), a circuit taking in Huddinknoll Hill near Edge to the west and a vigorous hike to the east into Slad Valley via Bull's Cross. To be honest, they're all vigorous! They're not exactly 'little' walks in this booklet ...
