St Kenelm's Trail

95 km / 59 miles

Gloucestershire, Worcestershire
This walk connects the two places most commonly associated with the legend of Kenelm: the Clent Hills, south of Birmingham, identified as the scene of his murder and the small Gloucestershire town of Winchcombe, near Cheltenham where his body was eventually interred. It is a journey across many memorable landscapes such as the Vale of Evesham, visiting numerous ancient villages, passing by several places of historic interest such as the picturesque, historic yet little-known Huddington Court and concludes with a spectacular finish through the grounds of the more famous Sudeley Castle.
