This track leads from St Michael's Church to the village of Brimpsfield. The 12th century church was built by a member of the Giffard family. The family were given Brimpsfield by William the Conqueror and there was a castle hereabouts until its demolition in 1322 after a family member joined in a rebellion against Edward II and was subsequently beheaded/hanged (not sure which) at Gloucester. The village was given a market at some time before 1400, but with the isolated position of the village and poor communications, it was not a success. Many generations must have passed along this way.
