Distance (miles)35
Starting fromCranham
Overview

'Medium distance rambler’s route from Cranham to Wyck Rissington, via Cheltenham and Bourton. Each of these places has some association with the composer, and the broad stretch of Cotswold country between them was also well known to Holst, who records several pleasant days spent walking in the uplands and dales.' ALERT Details of the Route no longer seems accessible on the Holst Birthplace Museum Website; so I have replaced the Link with one to an outline PDF courtesy of LDWA.
