A lovely place to walk. Good views to Gloucester and the River Severn. Park in Painswick and follow the Cotswold Way trail markers north and you get to the Painswick Beacon in about 30 minutes.

A destination appealing to those who care to tread when our oldest forefathers have been, with evidence of the presence, and those for whom panoramic views westwards into Wales across the valley carved by the River Severn will impress.

Such a historic place. We climbed to the top of the Beacon with stunning views of Gloucester and the Severn river. But to see iron age fortifications and think of those times, in such a setting - it was marvellous.
