Plan a family day out exploring these open spaces and rolling hills near Stroud in Gloucestershire. Cattle and ponies may be grazing on the commons in summer. Enjoy the fabulous views over the Severn Vale and Stroud from Rodborough Common and search for wild flowers and butterflies, including the rare Duke of Burgundy and Adonis Blue, in spring and summer.
To the south of Rodborough Common and linked by several tracks, lies Minchinhampton Common. This area of open grassland has archaeological features such as prehistoric field systems, remains of a defensive earthwork – The Bulwarks, and burial mounds.
