Pub Walk (84) Saturday 7th April 2018, from the Snowshill Arms, Snowshill.

North Cotswold Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale


  Seventeen walkers including a few grandchildren turned up at Snowshill for the 84th Saturday Pub Walk. After ordering lunch and the usual pub photo (Photo 1) we set off right from the car park and turned left uphill past the church (Photo 2) then left at the road junction now heading North.


  Past the National Trust Snowshill Manor we took a footpath on our left at the NT entrance. Wonderful views ahead as we dropped downhill (Photo 3) past a very proud Cotswold Lion with two recently born lambs (Photo 4).


  At the first gate left and continuing downhill to the bottom of the valley. Ascending a muddy path through woods we emerged and regrouped in the open (Photo 5) At the top of the field we turned left and South on a track past Great Brockhampton Farm then turned left heading East downhill again (Photo 6). Past a small lake and prize rare breed black sheep on our left (Photo 7) before emerging back at the road turning left back to the Church (Photo 8)


  A delightful short circular walk in one of the prettiest Cotswold Valleys less than 4 miles and back to a fine Donnington pub for lunch.


  Four beers on offer BB, SBA, Gold and On the Nose all in great condition with an excellent lunch (Photo 9)


  The Snowshill Arms is now in the very capable hands of two sisters Jackie Spear and Isobell Barr who carried on the tenancy from their father hence the revisit for the second pub walk here by North Cotswold CAMRA.


  The next official walk is the 85th of the series on Saturday 6th Oct after the busy Beer Festival Season.
