RAR 247 Putley

header artwork

Yes, its time for our now annual trip to the cider festval in the charming little hamlet of Putley We meet at Coventry station at 11:10am to catch the train at 11:24am. Changing at New Street we arrive at Ledbury at 13:14pm and set off to walk to Putley Green.

Leaving the station we cross the road and take the path that follows the railway. This leads up to a disused branch line, which makes an excellent footpath to south Ledbury. At a footbridge we take a path through suburbs and industry to cross the bypass. We next enter fields and cross the River Leadon and keeping orchards to our left pass Haygrove Farm. We reach Falcon Lane and go right until we turn left into Baregains Lane. At Baregains Farm we go right and pass polytunnels to enter Ast Wood. We follow the bridleway through the wood and then pass the timbered Priors Court. Across the main road we take the lane to Aylton and at Aylton crossroads we enter fields again. Over the hill and through fields we emerge at the hamlet of Putley Green, alongside an ancient timber framed cottage. We should arrive at about 2.30, thirty minutes after the cider festival opened, so in good time.

As with last year, I intend to aim for the 6:25pm train back. Since the taxi was so good last year, I shall order it for 5:30pm and we can go straight back to the station. That will give us 30 minutes longer at the festival. The festival closes at 6:00pm in any case.
