Tyndale Monument

2 miles (3.5 km)

This is a climb to the Tyndale Monument from the popular Cotswolds town of Wotton-under-Edge. It uses a section of the Cotswold Way National Trail to take you from the town to Westridge Woods and then on to the tower. The 19th century monument is an impressive landmark standing at a height of 111 ft (34 m). It was built in honour ofWilliam Tyndale, atranslatorof theNew Testament who was born in the area. From the tower viewpoint there are wonderful views across the Cotswold Hills AONB and into south Wales. You can actually climb the spiral staircaseof 121 steps for even better views! A topographdisplays all the places you can see from the summit.
The site is next to the geologically significant Nibley Knoll which shows a thick section of Lower and MiddleJurassicrocks. After your climb you can descend into the village of North Nibley and enjoy refreshments there.
To extend your walking in the area you could try the Wotton-under-Edge circular walk which takes you through the farmland and woodland surrounding the town. It also passes the Newark Park estate with 700 acres of parkland, gardens and lakes to explore.
If you follow the Cotswold Way north then you can visit Stinchcombe Hill where there is another great viewpoint. From here you can see back to the Tynedale Monument and across the Vale of the River Severn.
