Minchinhampton Common - Gloucestershire Outdoor
Minchinhampton Common is a large swathe of open grassland on top and slopes of the Cotswold escarpment, with fantastic views across the Severn Vale. Look out for the Winstone's ice cream van which is often parked nearby - the ice-cream is made just down the road! It is a really important archaeological landscape, with prehistoric field systems, burial mounds and the remains of a defensive earthwork, known as The Bulwarks. In the summer the common is grazed by local commoners' cattle. The area is managed by the National Trust. Let's keep this place special and please remember to take your litter home with you.
