SO8808 : Wysis Way-side field - Painswick, Gloucestershire

Wysis Way-side field - Painswick, Gloucestershire
Wysis Way-side field - Painswick, Gloucestershire
Looking north-west from the Wysis Way, at the southern end of Down Hill, over the valley of the Slad Brook in the direction of Bulls Cross. The Cross, an area of rather rough land, was and still is a meeting of roadways, to the south-east of Painswick at the meeting of Greenhouse Lane and Yokehouse Lane. It is also said to have been the site of a gallows. The Wysis Way is a 55 mile route from Monmouth to Kemble devised by Gerry Stewart of Countryside Matters. Annually I spent ten years as a Stroud District Council electoral registration canvasser for part of the parish of Painswick, delivering 500 forms and some of the addresses were quite scattered - plenty of welcome exercise. Time taken 2.40 pm BST (British Summer Time).
