Stroud Area

Rolling hills and wide open spaces rising up above the Stroud Valleys and Severn estuary.

Far-reaching views across Gloucestershire and towards Wales.

Fantastic for outdoor activities, from walking, to flying a kite.

Flower-rich limestone grassland attracts rare butterflies, such as the Adonis blue.

Home to the rare pasque flower and 13 species of orchid.

Grazed by traditional rare cattle breeds, like the belted Galloway
Archaeology dating from the Neolithic period.

After two decades absence, the Adonis blue butterfly has recently reappeared on Rodborough Common. It is hoped that these beautiful butterflies continue to flourish here. They can usually be spotted in June and August.

Large swathe of open grassland on the hill top and slopes of the Cotswold escarpment. It is a really important archaeological landscape, with prehistoric field systems, burial mounds and the remains of a defensive earthwork, known as The Bulwarks.

In the summer the common is grazed by local commoners' cattle.

Rodborough Common lies just to the north of Minchinhampton Common and offers a dramatic panorama overlooking Stroud and the Severn Vale. It is renowned for its colourful array of wild flowers and butterflies, starting with the pasque flower in spring and a superb display of early purple orchids in May.
