The walk in more detail:
From the meeting point in Uley we ascend a fairly steep path to Uley Bury, a fascinating Iron Age Fort named as a Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Far reaching views surround the fort, including Uley Valley and the Vale of Berkley - even to the River Severn on clear days.
After exploring the fort, we cross open fields to reach Uley Long Barrow (known as Hetty Pegler’s Tump locally).
Do you dare enter into the darkness to explore the chambers of the Neolithic tomb?
