William Tyndale, the reason we now have a bible written in English, is remembered here at this striking tower on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is well worth a visit BUT Getting up to it is fraught with problems and dangers, so travellers beware!...More

We visited on a glorious clear day and the views were magnificent. Impressed that the tower was open and that you could climb to the top. Beautiful surrounding woodland and countryside.

Just getting to the monument is a steep hike. It is open all the time, and free to enter. Inside a tight spiral staircase of 121 steps. Not for claustrophobic types. After about the first 30 steps there is nowhere for people to pass each...More

Lunch at the Black Horse Inn in North Nibley followed by a lovely walk along the Cotswold Way. The autumn colours were lovely and numerous paths to follow through the ancient beech woodland.

Yes, I think that would be OK. People could get out there but the bus may need to move further up the road to be able to park. There is space to park by the war cemetery which is about 200 yards further up the road.
