T03C Three Choirs Way, Day 3, Saturday 3 June

Links between the three cathedral cities and county towns of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester date to the early 18th century with music festivals being held. This more recently established Three Choirs Way links the three cities passing through some of the landscapes that inspired some of England’s most famous classical music composers.

This walk will follow the 33-mile section between the cathedrals at Worcester and Gloucester. We will travel by coach to / from the start / finish for each day’s walk.

Day 3 starts by following paths along the side of Ragged Stone Hill and Chase End Hill. From here it is an easy walk across fields to King’s Green and on to Pendock. We continue walking south along a ridge, with good views to the east, through fields and meadows to Staunton. Leaving Staunton, which has been a Chartist settlement since 1848, we pass through fields before climbing up Corse Wood Hill. Going down into the valley we walk to the village of Ashleworth and the end of Day 3.

There are some hills on this walk and some stiles and some sections of road walking. We will have time to stop and look at points of interest, the wildlife – flora and fauna and time to admire the views.

Bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink each day. Bring plenty of sun cream and suitable clothing.
