Pub Walk (88) Saturday 5th January 2019, from the Seven Tuns, Chedworth

North Cotswold Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale


  Nineteen walkers turned up at Chedworth for the 88th Saturday Pub Walk. This the first walk of 2019 and the fourth at the Seven Tuns, enabled by a change of Landlord, reopening on 19th October 2018. The previous walk No 67 with 15 walkers was held on 2nd April 2016 to welcome Liz Henty to the Seven Tuns. After a very successful two years Liz has sold the lease to Tom Conway and Simon Wilson-White who bring new experience to this gem of a pub which is firmly back in the GBG.


   We assembled in dry weather for the usual pub photo (Photo 1) and set off on a path opposite the pub to the right of the waterfall (Photo 2). Reaching the road we turned right past the attractive church and at the road end crossed a field heading North. Pausing at the top of a slope (Photo 3) to regroup we entered a wood with steps set into a steep hill to assist the climb. At the top we turned right onto a signed footpath for a short distance admiring views over Chedworth before reaching a junction of five paths taking the second on the left then heading East,


  Across four fields then turning right and south at a tree with white marks showing the crossing of paths. Slightly uphill here (Photo 4) before reaching a road crossing to a path opposite over a wall with steps. Over a field into a valley and on the other side take a left along a wide path until reaching a junction of paths just past the hedge. Turn right now heading South again for two more fields reaching a crossing of paths and continuing South. Downhill on a paved road past Greenhill Farm then uphill (Photo 5) past Bleakmoor. At the road junction we turned right now heading West and parallel to the disused railway line. Past the railway bridge in fine condition before turning right back to the pub sporting a new pub sign (Photo 6)


  Lunch was enjoyed in the refurbished dining room (Photo 7 and 8) washed down with a choice of Otter Amber, Hooky Bitter and Old Hooky (Photo 9) Fresh supplies of the house beer, Seven Tuns Bitter from TAP had just arrived so was unavailable.


  The next walk is the 89th at Bourton on the Water on Saturday 2nd Feb 2019. Meet at 6 Green Lake Close, BOTW, GL54 2PR, to park up and after the walk we lunch at The Manse next to the Motor Museum. A Green King establishment but Prescott is always available in addition to the usual Fizz.
