Daffodil Way – This is the famous 10 mile circular walk established by the Windcross Paths Group in 1988. Superimposed here on the 1903 O.S. Map this gives you a guide through our heritage landscape, en route revealing the surprisingly few developments of the C.20th. An Illustrated Daffodil Way map is available at St Mary's Church (GL18 2BS), at tourist offices, and from the Friends.
Kempley Ancient & Modern illustrated map : all weather walks between the two famous heritage churches, from the centre at the village hall and St Edward's, along the daffodil verges of the quiet country roads, to the C12th St Mary's ( photo opp.) . The route crosses the Daffodil Way, and links to several public footpaths as alternate returns if the weather is good. There are a dozen points of interest marked on the map to look out for - all the fun of a treasure hunt spotting details to reveal the development of a rural farming village, its buildings, monuments and landscape heritage. This map is sponsored by the Honor Ussher legacy to the Friends, 2012.
