The green hillsides of the Cotswold Way

Selsley Common

Selsey, Stroud, Gloucestershire (nearest postcode GL5 5PL)

Selsley Common has superb views over the River Severn and Malvern Hills into Wales. Its internationally significant grassland is home to a breathtaking array of wildflowers, birds and invertebrates and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It also features a Bronze Age burial mound, 'the Toots', but it is perhaps the views that make this an ideal venue for a stroll on the Cotswold Way.

A signed 5 mile Cotswold Way circular walk covers the common and also takes in the Stroudwater Canal and Penn Wood.
