Summary: The Windrush Way is a footpath in Gloucestershire which links the Cotswold Way at Winchcombe with the Oxfordshire Way at Bourton-on-the-Water. The Windrush Way goes over the hills with only the remains of ‘lost’ medieval villages en route to the River Windrush in Bourton. Mapped placenames on the route between Winchcombe and Bourton-on-the-Water are Sudeley Castle, No Man's Patch, Waterhatch, Cole's Hill, Spoonley Farm, Role Gate, Medieval Village of Hawling, Windrush Hill, Hawling Lodge, Cloud Hill, Gazeley Wood, Westfield House, Downs Barn, Aylworth, Medieval Village of Lower Harford, River Windrush and Aston Farm (Mill). The Wardens Way which runs on a parallel course to the north also links Winchcombe and Bourton but instead makes its way through the existing villages of Guiting Power, Naunton, Upper Slaughter and Lower Slaughter.
