Starting at the Quaint Cotswold village of Marshfield the home of the Marshfield Mummers, this walk first heads along a tranquil valley to the village of Cold Ashton, from there you head through the churchyard of Holy Trinity Church, from the church you follow the Cotswold way through Pennsylvania to just outside Dyrham village, it’s then across fields to West Littleton and the 13 century church of St James.
From West Littleton the return to Marshfield is mainly across fields with a couple of sections of very quiet country roads.
