From Cud Hill grid over Spoonbed-Upton St Leonards, Glos
Taken from the same viewpoint as 'Cud Hill near close of day' but facing south east instead of west. 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, on the right of this lane 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 5.40 pm BST (British Summer Time).
