Stinchcombe Heritage Walk
This is a 1 ¼ mile (2 km) circular route, starting and finishing at the Village Hall. It takes in many of Stinchcombe’s listed buildings and other landmarks. Most have featured, or will feature in coming months, in articles in the Our Virtual Village section. If the walk whets your appetite for historical information, read more there.
We hope that you enjoy the walk!
All mapping for the walk has been created by Stinchcombe resident, John Pinch. A large-scale copy can be viewed in the telephone box (Point 2 on the route). The original is displayed in the Village Hall.

The houses on the route are private homes – please respect the privacy of the occupants at all times. We ask you not to stray from the public rights of way to get a better view. In some cases your only view of a property will be a distant one.
On the off-road sections you must stick closely to the footpath and keep your dog on a lead. There will be livestock in some of the fields.
Please leave no litter and clear up any dog mess.
The walking notes combine directions with some of the history of points of interest on the route.
They are available in two formats:
Mobile-friendly if you want to read them directly from your phone as you do the walk
Printer-friendly if you prefer to print off a copy at home (10 pages including map and illustrations)
The route uses public footpaths and roads, including some stretches without a pavement. There are some stiles and one fairly steep off-road section that can be slippery. This hill and all but one of the stiles can be avoided by taking the short-cut mentioned in the walking notes.
