Dog Run
“Offering a tranquil environment to take a picnic, for children to play, or to enjoy walking the dog, the 9 acre site is proving to be a popular place to get away from it all. Millennium Arboretum was created in April 2000 as part of the national Millennium celebrations. Over 5000 trees and shrubs were planted while local residents sponsored the installation of 25 benches and additional feature trees”

Church
“St Mary’s church holds a very interesting past. The churchyard site was an ancient burial ground going back to Anglo-Saxon times, confirmed by the discovery of a buried Celtic cross, dating back to approximately 750AD, which now sits proudly in the entrance porch. It also holds the record for being the largest unsupported wooden ceiling in the country!”

Route
“Google maps is NOT showing the right location. Its near Box Bush on the right past Huntley and NOT in Newent. Absolutely breathtaking views and great for walks. Horse riding countryside and there are many ponies kept on the hill here. You can see for 100s of miles. Its the highest point around.”
