The Gloucestershire Way
Stage 7: Shipton Oliffe to Birdlip
Margaret W., Richard, Marie, Mick and Terry set off from the former Frog Mill at 9.25am on Wednesday 18 February. The weather was misty, which did affect visibility, and in parts the conditions under foot were very wet and muddy. We had a pleasant walk at a good pace, lovely snowdrops and aconites on view around Coberley. Passing dog kennels by Birdlip Radio Pylons we saw some fine large dogs, they responded to our presence with a sustained barrage of barking. A somewhat damp group reached the Air Balloon car park at approximately 1.15pm, having walked through drizzle the last couple of kilometres.
