Walk 1 (3.3 miles)

Starting from the car park at the back of the church the walk descends into Penstone,then climbs steadily towards High Knowle.

From here,the route follows Goblin Hill into Knowl,a charming village - part of the bridleway can be quite muddy even during the summer so sensible footwear is recommended.

It returns via Coleford,a most picturesque village .
