In our final blog about places of interest on The Cotswold Way we continue south to Bath. The final stop on The Cotswold Way. Between the villages of Tormarton and Cold Ashton, The Cotswold Way route passes the perimeter of Dyrham Park.
Situated in an ancient deer park, Dyrham Park is a baroque country house. It was recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The current house and surrounding buildings are grade one listed buildings. The surrounding grounds and countryside of over 250 acres is home to herds of fallow deer. The National Trust took over Dyrham Park carrying out extensive restoration between 2014 and 2015. The park is open to the general public. For more information click on the link here www.cotswolds.com/things-to-do/dyrham-park-national-trust-p2204523
Between Cold Ashton and Bath lies the site of The Batlle of Lansdown. Site of a Battle in The English Civil War. Fought in 1643 between Royalists and Parliamentarians. There is a monument on the site. It is dedicated to the bravery of Sir Bevil Grenville, a Royalist commander, who was mortally wounded here.
Lansdown Hill is the location of Bath racecourse. At 238 metres above sea level it is the highest flat racecourse in the country. Race meetings first took place here in 1728. During World War Two it was used as a landing strip by the RAF.
