Painswick Beacon

richellisphotography's picture

Painswick Beacon is a fantastic location for taking landscape photos, particularly at sunrise and sunset. At the crest of the hill is a fantastic view over the Five Valleys and on a clear day, Wales can be easily seen. There is a land marker feature as seen in my photo of distances to nearby towns and cities which makes a nice feature focal point for the photo. There is a limited amount of parking on the nearest road and it is a popular spot for dog walkers. There is a short uphill walk from the road to the Beacon and is a little rocky underfoot but not too strenuous.
