Walk 4 The rock beneath our feet

Transport to Stanway quarry for a tour by the site manager of this recently re-opened quarry. Limestone is sought after and some has been exported to the Far East. We then walk on and our route passes a drystone wall restoration project. Along the top of the escarpment we enjoy some great views of Stanway Estate before dropping into Hailes valley and its fruit farm for a cup of tea, before walking on to Winchcombe.  Bring a picnic lunch.
