The Pickenhams Circular Walk

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This 6.5 mile (10km) walk follows the Peddars Way National Trail and the tracks and roads through countryside to the east.

Of note is St Mary's Church at Houghton on the Hill. Parts of the church date from the eleventh century. Within the church there are some of the earliest known wall paintings of the Holy Trinity in Europe, in the 'Gnadenstuhl' style dating from 1090AD. These are therefore of international importance.

Again the military has had a strong association with the area. The site of an old USAF air base lies opposite the school.
