Pictures of Birdlip
in the county of Gloucestershire
Birdlip Hill is a beautiful wooded area, it curves round ancient turf clad rocky ground to Buckholt Wood and Cooper's Hill. The footpaths through the woods allow a glimpse of rare wild flowers and plants, cool forest glades, and the air is filled with the sound of birdsong from the colonies of birds that inhabit this magical place.
The village lies above the woods and from here the Roman Ermin Way runs its straight course to Cirencester. Just north of the village is the Iron Age burial mound at Barrow Wake. It is a delightful village with some fine properties, some built of mellow Cotswold stone and others of the timber framed black and white variety. This is a spacious area, which is seemingly eyrie and mysterious when the mist is swirling all round. At other times, the air is crystal clear and the summer sun trickles through the woods covering the turf with it's golden rays and it is then that you know that your trip to this famous landmark has been truly worthwhile.
Birdlip is on the Cotswold Way and within easy distance is Prinknash Abbey and the Rococo gardens at nearby Painswick and you are not far from 'Cider with Rosie' country - the Slad Valley near Stroud.
