The Gloucestershire Way
Stage 5: Stow-on-the-Wold to Cold Aston
Graham, David H., David A., Margaret W.,Martin, John U., Malcolm, Lesley, Richard and Terry met at Cold Aston around 9.15 am on Wednesday 14 January 2009 and travelled in two cars to Stow where the walk started.
The was weather cold and misty, roads were icy but going under foot was firm .Going out of Stow the equestrian nature of the Cotswolds was evident as we passed through several horse paddocks and by stables. Good progress was made to Lower Slaughter where a visit to the Church was combined with a coffee stop. Having crossed the Windrush and climbed up the steady rise to cross the A436 we dropped down to Camp Farm where Terry led the group off the track ( reminder to read map ) eventually realising his mistake we backed tracked and walked up the hill to Cold Aston, lunch was taken at The Plough at 1.45 pm.
