WMG/WRG Joint Walk & Social Event in The Cotswolds – Saturday 6 September 2014

A chance to enjoy some tourism in the Cotswolds and to catch up with old friends and colleagues, and meet new ones from two ITI regional networks. We start with a short steam train ride on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway (GWR) from Toddington to the attractive town of Winchcombe, followed by a walk (5 miles) which includes a long climb up a hill, rewarded by fine views and a picnic at the top. Then back down the other side, taking in the medieval ruins of Hailes Abbey (seen from the outside) with the help of an ice cream, and a last stretch back to Toddington in time for tea. Meet 10.30 onwards for coffee at Toddington GWR station, in the Flag & Whistle refreshment room. Buy your ticket first (single to Winchcombe, adult fare £7, child £3). We’ll catch the first train of the day at 11.10 and people can also join us at Winchcombe station, setting off at 11.30, or in the town itself around 11.45.
