A short but fantastic run, starting in the pretty Cotswold village of Broadway
and making its way unrelentingly up the Cotswold Way across a series of fields to the 18th-century Capability Brown folly
of Broadway Tower at the very top. The Cotswold Way is signposted on the R as you make your way up High Street from the village centre. Follow waymarkers as far as the tower. On reaching the top, either turn around and re-trace your steps – the run back through the fields is fantastic, good underfoot, fast and with stunning views – or turn R past The Rookery, and follow paths and track to Coneygree Lane before making your way through fields to Broadway. Broadway itself is abuzz with cafés.
