You can pick these up to explore the attractive countryside surrounding the town and to visit some of the local attractions. This walk makes use of the Monarch’s Way and the Macmillan Way to visit the wonderful Westonbirt Arboretum, the 16th century Chavenage House and the nearby village of Avening. It’s about a 10 mile walk in total with the option of getting the bus back from Avening to Tetbury.
