Cotswolds Walking Tour - Day 7

This is the last of seven posts on our walking tour through the English countryside of the Cotswolds. We took a self-guided tour arranged by English Lakeland Ramblers which meant they provided the B & B accommodations, the transport of our luggage and detailed instructions and maps. It went amazingly smoothly.

Day 7: Chipping Campden to Moreton-in-Marsh. 7 miles
Walk Description: "Pass through the charming villages of Broad Campden and Blockley and descend to Batsford where you may visit the arboretum and falconry centre.  Finally a pleasant stroll across meadows to Moreton-in-Marsh."

Our last morning of walking begins next to these potato fields.

Looking back at the tall steeple in Chipping Campden.

Another parish church.

A field of lavender!  Wow!

We stop at the Arboretum for lunch and then watch the falcon.

Final stretch to Moreton-in-Marsh.

It's market day again.

The parish church with work being done on its steeple.

We did it!  With all the extra walking we have done 50 miles!
