Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust – Day at the Sub Rooms plus Walk to the Slad Valley from Stroud
Saturday 22nd November 1.30pm Walk to the Slad Valley from Stroud
Join Strouds’ local Wildlife Trust team on a walk from Stroud Sub Rooms forecourt, through the beautiful Slad Valley to Swift’s Hill and the new Laurie Lee Wood nature reserves. The iconic valley, immortalised in Laurie Lee’s Cider with Rosie remains unchanged and you can still see Laurie’s childhood home, the church, schoolhouse and Woolpack Inn that feature in his famous novel. You will take in some of the Trusts poetry posts, launched earlier in the year and get the opportunity for a quick stop to have a cider, but maybe not with Rosie!
