STROUD RADICAL HISTORY
ALTERNATIVE HERITAGE WALK
Friday, April 20th – 2018
A circular walk from Stonehouse Station to Standish, Haresfield, Ring Hill, Randwick Woods and back to Stonehouse. Ancient Barrows, mediaeval churches, Romano-British farmsteads, a moated stronghold, a hillfort and old woodland. Throughout the walk the construction of the controversial Javelin Park incinerator will dominate the view to the west. We will explore alternative historical narratives via walking through this complex landscape.
Start 09.15 from Stonehouse station (catch the 09.07 train from Stroud) Approx 6 hours. Mostly footpaths through meadows and farmland and a steep climb via a country lane. No need to book. Just turn up.
