10.5 miles with just over 500m of ascent

Starting in Dundry (Either meaning the hill that is dry, or a fort) with its church with a four stage tower erected in the 15th century and located a couple of miles south of Bristol, we'll take in spectacular views over the entire city and if the weather is clear we should even be able to see Wales.    We'll then head over to Maes Knoll and eat lunch on top of the Iron age fort, where there should be clear views north to Bristol, east to Bath and the Cotswold Hills, and south over Stanton Drew stone circles to Chew Valley Lake and the Mendip Hills.  From here there's quite a few up's and down's as we head through the hamlet of East Dundry, before a long climb back up to take in the Grade 2 listed Castlefarm House and one last chance to take in the views over Barrow Gurney reservoirs and Bristol before heading back in to Dundry for a well deserved pint.

Dogs are welcome on this walk but we will be passing through farm land where they will need to be under control.  There are also one or two styles that may prove difficult for larger breeds.
