55 km / 34 miles

The Gustav Holst Way is a medium distance route from Cranham to Wyck Rissington, via Cheltenham and Bourton. Each of these places has some association with the composer, and the broad stretch of Cotswold country between them was also well known to Holst, who spent many pleasant days walking in the uplands and dales.
