Hailes Abbey is a very interesting walk indeed, slightly strenuous, but undoubtedly worth it . Our adventure begins in the delightful historic town of Winchcombe and continues east over rolling countryside past the remains of the 13th century Hailes abbey. From there we amble up to the Cotswold escarpment with a worthy deviation to mystical Beckbury monument also known as Cromwell’s chair (legend has it that it was from here that Oliver Cromwell sat and watched his troops destroy the abbey)! With Cromwells Chair at our rear we head back down to the tiny rural hamlet of north Farmcote absorbing its sweeping views of the Evesham vale and the Malvern Hills in the distance. Our journey ends with a welcome descent  back to winchcombe, utilising a splendid combination of typical English country lanes and rugged paths.
