Cud Hill near close of day-Upton St Leonards, Glos
The lane over Cud Hill which links the B4073 Gloucester - Painswick road to the south of Upton St Leonards with the A4173 Gloucester - Stroud road at Edge. Common land at Cud Hill of just over 8 acres is the site of grazing by cattle of local farmers to keep grass down and give species of flora a chance to flourish under a scheme run jointly by the Cotswolds Conservation Board and Natural England. To the right of this road ahead is a memorial to architect Detmar Blow and Winifred his wife, who lived at Hilles House which looks out over Brookthorpe towards Robinswood Hill, which is now a country park run by Gloucester City Council. To the south east the Cotswold Way passes over Painswick Hill on its route from Chipping Campden (silent p) to Bath, making a very pleasant week or more of walking. Time taken 5.45 pm BST (British Summer Time).
