Day 6 - Tuesday 18th August 2015

Start point was Painswick. The first part of the walk was the usual mix of woodland and common land. There were wild orchids near the Edgmoor Inn. I joined company with two other walkers as far as the Haresfield Beacon with its marvellous views of the Severn Estuary and there I stopped for lunch.  I continued through Standish Wood where I lost time having lost the trail markers and ending at a dead end. On regaining the path, I joined another walker passing through squeeze stiles on the way to King's Stanley. The climb up to Pen Hill was very steep but there was a more woodland and open grass land towards Coaley Peak.  I passed a well kept Nympsfield Long Barrow and decided to use the raod from Coaley to Uley as it passed Hetty Pegler's Tump (disappointlingly less well kept).  At Uley I found my B&B at the Old Crown Inn.
