Our Chosen Hill | Walk No.6 | Bluebell Woods, Zoons Court, The New Woods, The Trig Point & The Church

Hi Everyone,

Requests for Guided Walks are one of the messages that we receive most often at Our Chosen Hill.

With this in mind, I put together a series of different maps and suggested walks during 2022, to help those of you who would like a little help exploring the Hill and surrounding area.

As you might already guess, arranging to meet up for walks at a time which suits everyone isn’t always easy. So, although we may try and arrange a longer guided walk later this year – perhaps on the basis of something like The Old Elm Inn & Wheatstone Inn Loop – I thought I might try and record some of my own walks in map form, for those of you who are interested to try.

This walk is approximately 3 miles in length and will take around 1.75 – 2 hours, depending on how quickly you walk and how much time you need to stop and take in the views and/or take pictures etc.

The Route (Clockwise):

The walk begins at the Car Park (4) Then heads down Jesse Purnell’s Way into the Bluebell Woods (29). Following The Lower Circular Walk around to The Buckled Gate (M), the walk then follows Stump Lane past Fairy Door No.1 (a), The Tumps (28), Jack Morris (b)[Please note that Jack hasn’t returned from his Winter break at time of writing!], The Golden Egg (c)to Buscombe Noake (9). Following The Lower Circular Walk a little longer, the walk then heads down the Hill to Zoons Court (10) and then heads along the path to Whitticombe Arch & Pirton, to the Footbridge (Q). Heading back up, the walk then follows the field boundary along the bottom and up to the Corner of The New Woods (16). Going up the Pirton End of The New Woods, the walk then rejoins The Lower Circular Walk going anti-clockwise, until it reaches the path from Buscombe Noake to Tinkers Hill, which it follows to and up the Wet Steps (ws), and then along The Soldiers Walk (sw) to Fairy Door No. 5 and Five Ways Meet (g). The Final leg of Walk No. 6 takes in The Trig Point (8), The Old Radio Mast (7) and The New Radio Mast (6) before passing the Car Park (4) and then doing a loop of The Parish Burial Ground (3), passing The Vergers Cottage (2) and then St. Bartholomew’s Church (1) before ending at The Car Park (4).

Here are some pictures from the walk (All taken on Sunday 5th March 2023):

There are 5 Maps already available which you can download as PDFs without charge.

Walk No. 6 is pretty much the same to walk anti-clockwise in terms of difficulty. This is a walk for the Summer months or when the ground is dry, as it passes through some of the most difficult parts of Chosen Hill’s path network in the Winter and wet months.

There are steps and some very tight gateways along this walk. It isn’t suitable for push chairs or anyone who might find uneven ground difficult to walk on. Appropriate walking footwear is always advisable.

The first version of the Map isn’t perfect, but I wanted to get something posted for those of you who are thinking of things to do – bearing in mind just how good the paths are for the time of year! (5 March 2023) – and that this walk will provide a different route to take in some of the best areas to see The Chosen Hill Bluebells when they appear in the next few weeks.



Walk Around & Through Horsbere Reserve | Our Chosen Hill

Hi Everyone 😊

Now and then  we post pictures and talk about The Horsbere Reserve, which is located in the far corner of the Chosen Hill area, nearest Longlevens and ajacent to The Barnwood Bypass and The Railway as it crosses the Barnwood Bypass Bridge.

Carrying an extra camera today so that I could take another video around the top of the Hill, I thought it might be helpful to anyone thinking about exploring out this far or perhaps about to try The suggested Old Elm / Wheatstone Inn ‘Summer’ Walk to film a quick walk through so that you can get some idea about what to expect.

Beginning as I approached on the path from Pirton (Churchdown) and Whitticombe Arch, the walk follows the Railway to the Bypass and around to the track that cuts through and then leads up to Zoons Court with the Path.

It was a bit gloomy around 8am on Tuesday 28th February 2023 when this was filmed. But the area is beautiful year-round and is especially lovely to visit during the summer months when the many wild flowers that have been planted are in bloom and the Gloucester Cattle that graze the banks are also wandering about!

If you are planning a visit, to find your way to The Wheatstone Inn, you just need to cross the pedestrian bridge and then follow the path that goes in an anti-clockwise loop around the Premier Inn that can clearly be seen. The Pub is the other side.

Late February Walk around St. Bartholomew’s, The Churchyard & Parish Burial Ground

Hi Everyone 😊

From time to time, we post a video of a walk around St. Bartholomew’s Church, The Churchyard and The Parish Burial Ground.

As the last video like this was posted on Christmas Day, a request for pictures from one of our many followers who cannot regularly visit prompted me into carrying a different camera this morning to see how I might get on.

Whilst everyone adores this wonderful Church, being able to keep up with how the Graveyards look is just as important for many followers who have loved ones, families and friends who are resting in this wonderful place.

Today’s video is about 7-8 minutes in length and although the morning of Tuesday 28th February 2023 – just before 9am – was a bit misty and grey, the whole place is just as beautiful as ever, and we even caught sight of a couple of The Chosen Hill Squirrels!

Our Chosen Hill 😊

Would you like to help Our Chosen Hill?

Hi Everyone 😊

Many of you will recall that after talking with a few of the other walkers, I set Our Chosen Hill up during the first Lockdown in 2020, ostensibly to try and provide a platform on social media that would help to tackle things like access issues, potholes and littering around what some of us know as Chosen Hill, and others know as Churchdown Hill.

From the beginning, I focused on sharing what I experienced on the Hill as I walked each time.

It quickly became clear that many of you were really enjoying the pictures and videos, not only because it is so wonderful to see the changes that are happening within the natural environment right the way around the Hill, each day and all of the time. But also because for those of you who are unable to visit often, our Facebook page, Instagram page, Twitter feed and WordPress Blog are a very effective way to keep in touch – especially when you are located on the other side of the world!

Just taking pictures and putting together social media posts and blogs takes a lot of time. But there is more that can be done, as has been proven not only by the Walks Maps that have been published, but also by the successful outcome from the support that we all gave to the funding application made by The Woodland Trust that resulted in the installation of the year-round, all-weather Woodland Walk around the top of the Hill in the summer of 2021.

Unfortunately, I cannot do it all. And with some changes now underway for me, it is unlikely that I will be able to take as many pictures and videos and put together posts for publishing quite as much as I have done before now.

With this in mind, I would like to ask if any of you who are regular walkers or visitors to Chosen Hill / Churchdown Hill, would like to help out in a way that will allow us to keep posting news, pictures, videos and other regular updates in a way that would suit you, but would also be in keeping with the way that Our Chosen Hill has been developed and maintained?

Please note: It’s really important that the integrity of Our Chosen Hill is maintained. This is not an opportunity that will suit anyone who wants to promote or support other things that they are doing or issues they have an interest in which may not be directly related to what is happening or what people and organisations who are active on the Hill itself are doing. Our Chosen Hill is all about the love, interest and enjoyment we all share for and from Chosen Hill and have in common. Nothing more.

If you are interested, please get in touch by e-mail on ourchosenhill@gmail.com and I will get back to anyone who is interested in a week or two, and see where we go from there.

Thank you for reading!

Best wishes,


The Buscombe Noake Tea Rooms & other interesting historical snippets…

Hi Everyone,

One of the great things about the Internet and having pages on social media and so-on, is it that the information, pictures and videos that are helpful to people remain there, even when you aren’t able to keep updating them!

I’m grateful for this, as early in January, when I was bust with other things, I had a direct message from Susan Browning who had found Our Chosen Hill online. Susan kindly followed up by email a couple of weeks ago to remind me that she was doing some research and said:

I have been researching my husband’s family history and have discovered that his great grandparents Mary and William Browning owned Buscombe Noake and had the tea gardens, welcoming for many years the Rechabite outings from Gloucester.

In itself, I’m sure that many of us will agree that there is some really interesting history here for those of us who love Chosen Hill to share.

The records of Rechabite Outings to the Hill go back as early as 1901 and Susan later added: “Several hundred children and adults made their way up the hill to take part in games, races, singing etc put on by the Brownings coming on special trams.”

You can read more about The Rechabites and what they did on Wikipeadia HERE

As I began to think about the conversation I was having with Susan, I recalled the post that went out on our Facebook page in October 2020, after one of our Followers, Bea Bevan got in touch in the hope of finding members of her family, as her mother had run the Tea Rooms and her father was actually born at Buscombe Noake itself!

I passed the link back to Susan to see if there was any crossover. Susan very kindly focused her research and came back with a list of information that I feel it’s only fair to add here in full:

“That’s really interesting. Buscombe Noake was owned by William Browning according to the land tax records of 1909, but he also owned (and put as his residence in the census) 23 Park End Street as well as many other properties in central Gloucester.” 

“He was still living at the property in 1921 according to the census, (despite still having 23 Park End Street) however it seems by this time to have been sub-divided as his address is 3 Buscombe Noake. Another interesting point in this census is that there’s a nurse living in the property, he’s a widower (it says he’s a boarder) and says the head is someone who is out of work called Thomas Barter and his wife.” 

“Buscombe Noake was sold in 1925. I’m not sure whether William was the vendor but it is sold as a tea garden.”

“I seem to remember during my research that the name Bevan does come up relating to the tea gardens in the 1940s. The online newspaper archive has a few articles. A lot of them relate to the Brownings’ hosting Rechabite outings at their tea gardens. But I think there’s a chimney fire at Buscombe Noake and Bevan is mentioned.” 

“So I did a little search:”

(This is a list of all the things that Susan found!)

  • 1895 renting out apartments Buscombe Noake apply Mrs Jordan of Zoons Farm
  • 1894 also apartments to rent as above. 
  • 1901 Rechabites – the Brownings Bro. Browning 
  • 1904 Rechabite outing Brownings
  • 1905 Rechabite outing Brownings
  • 1906 Rechabite outing – Brownings 
  • Annual Rechabite outing 1909 Brownings 
  • 1911 Rechabite outing – Brownings
  • 1913 Rechabite outing The Brownings 
  • This is interesting in 1917 letting out part of Buscombe Noake suitable for a young lady.
  • I don’t know whether William was still there then as his wife had died by then.
  • 1925 Sale of Buscombe Noake tea gardens 
  • 1932 Buscombe Noake for sale – several notices for this sale
  • Another Bevan wedding Lottie July 1944
  • Selling ferrets apply to Bevan 1944
  • Bevan/Stuart wedding in 1946
  • Reward for something lost Bevan 1949
  • More ferrets 1946
  • Bevan engagement announcement 1948
  • More ferrets 1946
  • Reward for a lost brooch Bevan 1949
  • One ton pig potatoes apply Mr Bevan 1948
  • 1995 mention of Mrs Bevan selling home made lemonade 
  • So it would appear to have been sublet at some point. 
  • Owners are Mrs Jordan from Zoons farm 1890s but by 1901 William Browning owns it. Then it’s unclear what happens to the property – last Rechabite outing mentioned – actually last time I found one in 1914. But the war was on. 
  • I have a photo of the Browning family in the gardens. My father in law born 1914 is about 3 I think in the photo. So probably taken around 1917. 
  • Bea says her father born there 1919. 
  • The property is sold in 1925 by auction. 
  • And again in 1932. 
  • The Bevan family start to appear in the newspaper in the mid 40s. 

I’m sure that you will agree that this is all fascinating stuff!

If you have anything you can add, please do get in touch or comment.

Big thanks to Susan Browning for her efforts and for getting in touch!

Best wishes,


The Winter Wonderland on Chosen Hill – December 2022

Hi Everyone,

As I was out of the area yesterday, I had worried that I might miss a wintery walk and the opportunity to grab a few pictures – particularly of the Church. I needn’t have worried – and when I found my way on to #ourchosenhill through Pirton Gate when it was still dark this morning, it really was a magical wintery wonderland that came inti sight!

The walking was hard going, particularly as there were a good few inches of snow lying in some areas around the Hill. But the views were absolutely stunning, and I hope that the pictures I took as I headed up The Railway Field, up Tinkers Hill via the Tinkers Hill Pines, up The Wet Steps and straight up to the Church with less light to use, will still provide some very good pictures for you.

As I walked around the top, there was a little more light and I decided to take a walk-around video view of The Parish Burial Ground, The Car Park, St. Bartholomew’s Churchyard and around the Church itself, as well as the view. The video is linked below to YouTube, where you can get a much bigger view, or alternatively it has also been posted as a Video to our Facebook Page.

As the light improved into proper wintery morning daylight, I took in The Trig point, Five Ways Meet, The Soldiers Walk and a quick stop off at The Mussel Well, before using the path down from Tinkers Hill and the Wet Steps to Buscombe Noake so that I could loop around and see how the Sheep were getting on above Zoons Court.

The final leg of my walk back to Pirton too in The Two Oaks and the New Woods before heading over to the Railway Field and suddenly hearing a lot of mooing and then seeing the remaining Chosen Hill Cows running down to get their breakfast, after they had heard the Farmer driving the tractor down Pirton Lane with a big bale of yummy hay!

As I say, some of the shots may be darker, and some to the point where they may even appear to be black and white! They aren’t, and I do hope that you enjoy the views of a very wintery Chosen Hill, as much as I enjoyed what turned out to be a very long walk!!!

There is a good selection of pictures to see by clicking the Slider below.

Best wishes,


Remembrance on Chosen Hill – ’22

Good Morning Everyone,

It feels quite unbelievable that we are once again back in November and taking the early steps in what feels like a planned timetable of annual events and happenings that lead us all the way up to Christmas.

Since Our Chosen Hill began during Lockdown in 2020, the approach of Remembrance Day has provided the opportunity to write and post about the Commonwealth Graves that are located within St. Bartholomew’s Churchyard on Chosen Hill.

In my 2020 post, I wrote about Flt Sgt Teddy Boakes, who doesn’t have a traditional Commonwealth Graves headstone, but is nonetheless listed with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and can be found resting very close to the path that runs alongside the Vergers Cottage to The Parish Burial Ground.

Last year, it was great to have the opportunity to look up and discover three more graves of those who died in service of our Country, and like Teddy, are at rest in close view to the wonderful Church on the Hill that we are all so fond of and share in common.

There’s little that I can add to the stories that I have made you all aware of already. But if you should enjoy the snapshots of life stories that can be shared with us in just the few meaningful words that are left to remind us of real lives on headstones, there are a number of others in both Graveyards that raise a flag to others who have served, pretty much throughout the timelines of the headstones that we can still see and know to exist.

There are a growing number of people, regrettably many of them from younger and upcoming generations, who would like to see the whole ‘poppy thing’ put away or shelved.

Yet the whole point of this annual ritual of acknowledging and taking just a few moments to reflect upon the high price that was paid and the personal stories of those concerned – no matter how long ago it might have been – is that it serves as a fitting reminder of what we should all really wish for, for everyone in life, and what together we should always continue to proactively avoid.

There has perhaps never been a moment in time that we have all needed to value the legacy that these four people and millions of others with stories just like them, have left us collectively, as a guide.

A Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Cross has been placed on each of the four Commonwealth Graves this year, in Remembrance, on behalf of us all.

The image below also provides a guide of how to find the four Graves, for those of you who are able to visit, and would like to share a moment as you enjoy a visit to St. Bartholomew’s, and pass by.

Links to the two previous blogs about Remembrance Day can also be found below.

Thank you to all of you who have served, no matter when, or whatever your role may have been.

Best Wishes, Our Chosen Hill

Chosen Hill Harvest ’22 – All the pictures; All the films

Hi Everyone,

You may already have seen some of the pictures and even the films of this year’s Harvest on Chosen Hill. So please accept my apologies if you have.

Facebook is the most popular platform for Our Chosen Hill, and that is why the majority of the pictures, videos and of course the news that we publish from across the Hill arrives there first. However, we also have accounts on Instagram and Twitter too, and anything significant or detailed actually begins here on the OCH Blog, where it immediately travels to the inboxes of a growing number of subscribers who don’t use social media or other areas of the Internet as much as many of us do.

With that in mind, and Harvest being such a big part of the farming side of life on Chosen Hill, its only fair that I pool all of the best pictures and links to all the videos here too, so that everyone can keep an eye on what’s been going on!

Harvest this year has been a classic or what feels like a traditional harvest, given that the majority of the Fields on The Railway Side (Pirton Court) and around Zoons Court have this year been used to grow crops of wheat – all of which have been harvested over the past week. (Zoons Court approaching and over last weekend, The Railway Side on Thursday this week)

The respective farmers and their harvest teams have been working hard – and very quickly. So much so that with the Combine Harvester finishing up by the Railway late on Thursday evening, the four fields it had harvested on Thursday were all baled on Friday and there were tractors out in the fields at just after 9am this morning, picking them up.

Its exciting stuff for the farming anoraks amongst us, and on the two Facebook Posts so farm I have tried to add a little info to some of the pictures to at least try and explain some way how some of the machines and processes work.

Please find a slide show immediately below, followed by links to the films of the combining that are now on our YouTube Channel with films of things like lambing too!

Hope you enjoy – and thank you for your support!!!

Best wishes,

Chosen Hill – A Musical History!

Hi Everyone,

As Our Chosen Hill has become more established and the number of you who are following and sharing with friends and family has increased, more and more interesting news and information has headed our way.

Admittedly, I am now often stopped by walkers (dogs and cows too!) who ask if I’m the Facebook Page guy, and its always nice to have a chat and learn a little more about how this wonderful Hill we all share plays such a special role in our lives.

Of course, just as the younger people from Churchdown, Hucclecote and Brockworth who visit with their friends on summer evenings or during the holidays see Chosen or Churchdown Hill have a very different perspective to those of us with a 40+ vintage or beyond, the fact is that we are just the current visitors, fans and custodians of the Hill. Indeed, this cycle of interest and love of our local countryside and landmarks has been in many historic hands before us all too.

Last year it was amazing to discover that there used to be a Tea Room at Buscombe Noake. More recently we have all shared the interesting article ‘A History of St. Bartholomew’s Church, Chosen Hill, Churchdown’. And now, just this week, one of our Followers has been in touch to reveal that there is a fantastic musical history and link with well-known Composers with Chosen Hill too!

Not everyone likes or feels able to write. But after exchanging a few messages, Simon Carpenter, who is also Volunteer Archivist and Historian with The Three Choirs Festival, kindly shared this:

Chosen Hill has a unique place in English classical music and literary history, being associated with four of its biggest names, Herbert Howells, Ivor Gurney, Will Harvey, Gerald Finzi and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

In the years up to the First World War, the composer Herbert Howells used to go walking on the hill with the composer and poet Ivor Gurney, and later with his girlfriend and soon to be wife, the singer, Dorothy Dawe, as often as possible. In tribute, he inscribed his A minor Piano Quintet to ‘the hill at Chosen and Ivor Gurney who knows it,’ and also composed Chosen Tune for violin and violin which he dedicated to Dorothy Dawe whom he married in 1920. It was performed at their wedding in Twigworth in 1920. Views from Chosen Hill are also thought to have inspired some of Gurney’s best poems, and he also used to walk the area around that same time with a schoolfriend, the poet, Will Harvey*. It was Will Harvey who is likely to have kindled Gurney’s interest in writing poetry.

Between 1922 and 1925 the composer Gerald Finzi lived in Gloucestershire. While he and his mother were looking for a house in the county they stayed as paying guests of a Mrs Champion at Chosen Hill Farm, on the slopes of the hill. Finzi and his mother soon moved to an old house in Painswick for a short time. However, in 1925, on the last night of the year, having recently returned to living with Mrs Champion on Chosen Hill, prior to a move to London, he climbed to the church at the top of his beloved hill as the villagers rang in the year. He looked at the frosty stars and heard the bells rising from the valleys and the plain below. Then with the ringers he went into the sexton’s small stone cottage nearby to enjoy the cider and singing. But it was the moment of solitude that lodged in his imagination to return in 1951 when he started composing his well-known Christmas work, In terra pax.

First performed in 1954, the composer rescored In terra pax in 1956 for the Three Choirs Festival held in Gloucester that year. He conducted the performance and was delighted with the results. It was not a surprise then for he and his wife to take their friends, the Vaughan Williamses, also attending the Festival, up Chosen Hill where Gerald had stood over thirty years before and heard the bells ring in the New Year. ‘This is where I got the idea’ he told them. While the two wives stood outside in the September sun. Gerald took ‘Uncle Ralph’ into the nearby sexton’s cottage. It didn’t seem that important that one of the sexton’s children had chickenpox. However, a couple of weeks later Finzi, already seriously ill, developed shingles, followed by chickenpox. He was taken to the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford where encephalitis, inflammation of the brain, was also diagnosed. He died in the hospital the next day, 27 September 1956. He was just 55 years old.

*(I’m afraid I couldn’t find any links to Will Harvey online)

After a little digging around, we have found the ‘Chosen Tune’ on YouTube below, along with some more interesting information on this blog ‘Herbert Howells: String Quartet in Gloucestershire’ too.

If you have any more interesting stories or history about the Hill, along with any links, please do get in touch by email on ourchosenhill@gmail.com .

Chosen Hill Walk Map | The Old Elm & Wheatstone Loop | Summer Pub Walk (Suggested)

Hi Everyone,

We’ve now published a few different walk maps for Chosen Hill, including a suggested summer pub walk that starts and finishes in Churchdown, taking in the Old Elm Inn.

Minded that everyone joins the Hill from different places and different directions, we thought it might be useful to draw up another map and suggested summer walk, that makes Churchdown Village and The Old Elm Inn the midpoint of a walk for those either walking from Hucclecote or Longlevens, but also brings in The Wheatstone Inn at Centre Severn off the Barnwood Bypass as an option for anyone walking from Churchdown who might like to break up a longer looped walk with refreshments too.

With this in mind, we have created The Old Elm & Wheatstone Loop Walk.

This is a suggested circular walk around Chosen Hill that aims to provide the widest range of the different views and perspectives of and from the Hill as possible in one continual walk.

The Old Elm & Wheatstone Inn Loop itself takes in Horsbere Reserve, The Railway Path & Railway, Whitticombe Arch, The Field Barn, The Scraggly Tree, The Corner of The New Woods, The top of The Railway Field, The Field Oaks, The Green (Churchdown)*, St. Bartholomew’s Church, The Soldiers Walk, The Reservoirs, The Trig Point, The Bluebell Woods (Bluebells April/May time only), The Buckled Gate, Stump Lane, The Golden Egg, Buscombe Noake, The Two Oaks and Zoons Court. There are plenty of other things to see around the Hill on this route too, and these are included on the map, so please allow additional time if you plan to explore along the way!

At the core of The Old Elm & Wheatstone Loop is a circular route that you can walk without detours to either of the pubs. Walkers can join at any point, and pick and choose which of 4 different options to follow, namely:

Circular Route (without the pubs)

Distance: 4.3 Miles (approx.)

Walking Time: Suggested to Allow 1 hour 45 mins

The Old Elm & Wheatstone Loop (visiting both pubs)

Distance: 5.2 Miles (approx.)

Walking Time: Suggested to Allow 2 hours 15 mins

Break at The Old Elm:

Distance: 4.8 Miles (approx.)

Walking Time: Suggested to Allow 2 hours

Break at The Wheatstone Inn:

Distance: 4.7 Miles (approx.)

Walking Time: Suggested to Allow 2 hours

Here are some views from the route:

There is a mixture of flat and hill walking on these routes and steps and stiles are unavoidable. This is a dry weather walk and it is possible that some of the paths could become difficult to walk after a period of heavy rain, even in the summer months – so please do bear this in mind.

This circular walk is particularly nice to experience around harvest time, as the route takes in the Railway, Zoons Court and Gloucester sides of Chosen Hill, where the fields are used for growing crops, whilst the loop also takes in the established woodlands around the upper areas of the hill and then passes through the fields where you may catch a glimpse of the Chosen Hill Cows or the Chosen Hill Sheep too.

(If you are walking with doggy friends, please keep them on a lead/under control anywhere near livestock, and please bag up and bin any poo too. There are bins in the Car Park by the Church and at the gateway to Horsbere Reserve/Barnwood Bypass)

*The Green, Churchdown will not feature on this walking route if you should decide to break the loop to visit The Old Elm Inn and/or Churchdown Village.


Free Parking is available in Churchdown Village at the Chapel Hay Car Park, near to The Old Elm Inn. GL3 2HS

For further information about booking etc., details for the pubs are as follows:

PLEASE NOTE: This walk is a suggestion for Followers of Our Chosen Hill and visitors to the area with the aim that it will maximise the opportunity to enjoy the experience of the Hill and make a nice outing from the visit. We have no relationship with either The Old Elm Inn or The Wheatstone Inn and make no recommendation regarding the service, food or drink that may be available.
