Newtown, Gully Copse, Burridge Heath. 6 miles

This 6 mile walk leaves from Great Bedwyn Village Hall. We’ll walk along Galley Lane and uphill from Jockey Green, through the trees of Birch Copse and out to Newtown There’s a long ascent on the metalled byway and open tracks, before we reach shady woodland and a recently installed wooden bridge at Gully Copse (thank you Wilts rights-of-way!) We’ll return back down from Burridge Heath to Little Bedwyn, then back to Great Bedwyn along a recently cleared bridleway beside the towpath. Please expect uneven and, in a few places, overgrown surfaces through the woodland and come prepared for the weather conditions: Hat, sunscreen, water if hot. Suitable clothing & boots if wet (gully – the clue is in the name!) Shorts not advised. Tick protection strongly advised. No stiles. 1 short steep bank. Sheep and lambs in the fields. This is a long 6 miler but we will take a break along the way so bring some refreshment.
