With views along the Avon valley from Bath to Bristol, an iron age hill fort, a horse racing course, a battle monument and wildlife sightings this turned out to be a superb and fascinating walk!

Starting from the village of Upton Cheney my route took me down through fields and across a wooded stream to a cluster of houses at North Stoke. Walking up past the church brought me to the first historic site of the walk: an iron age hill fort, known as Little Down Hill Fort. This promonotory fort consists of ditches and embankments around the outside of what are now cultivated fields. The footpath goes right across the middle of the fort. Looking behind me were excellent views over to Bristol.
