Belas Knap Long Barrow and Cleeve Common
Winchcombe is a hugely popular spot for walkers, and with the impressive views of Sudeley Castle a mile away, it’s not hard to see why. This scenic eight-and-a-half-mile walk takes you up along The Cotswold Way to the Neolithic burial mound of Belas Knap. From here, head west along the atmospheric Cleeve Common until you reach the Single Beech and Iron Age fort, perched high up on the Cotswold Edge. With views as far as Wales on a clear day, it’s worth the trek. Head back down to Postlip, then into Winchcombe for a well-deserved local ale at The Lion Inn.
