The starting point for my walk was this lovely little Church at Hailes, from this point I struck out along some quiet country lanes where this ivy covered letter box caught my eye.
The notice says that there are regular collections from this box, but the ivy seems to indicate otherwise, lol.
It wasn't long before I left the lanes and was striding through the beautiful cotswold countryside, where I met a wonderful local man out walking his dog. He asked me all about where my walk was taking me and told me about his recent walking holiday with his daughter, its nice that you can still find places where people will stop and share the time of day with you.
Leaving the fields I walked through the lovely little village of Didbrook, I just loved this gate which formed the entrance to St George's church.
Through the village it was back to the fields to join part of the Cotswold way footpath, climbing up the hill was hard work but worth it for the views over the countryside.
Look at this wonderful scene is there anything which says English countryside more?
