Walked as part of a section of Cotswold WayD SID02/08/2019
Made it difficult by parking at end of Knapp Lane to N, along Cots/Way a short distance then directly up very steep wood. Had a crawl around inside the barrow too.Aye Jimmy22/06/2019
Simple stroll from the parking spot by the reservoir gate. Worth a crawl around inside the long barrow too.milimana29/04/2019

Tracey and I did CTX CB hereJohnboy730/12/2017
With my family - parked in the sort-of layby by the reservoir a little way down the road. My young daughter loved being able to go inside the tomb - although it was a bit of a dirty-knees squeeze through the entrance for us oldies! Didn't realise it was a tump at the time, so glad we stood on top of the mound as well as going inside.wheresthepath31/07/2017

There is parking a short way down the road. Hetty Pegler's Tump is a long barrow in the care of English Heritage, take a torch if you want to explore the inside the burial chamber.Swindon Bagger21/08/2015

Kingscote to Dursley. E side of Uley Bury, Cotswold Way then steep ascent of earthy bank to the well manicured show barrow.Smudge14/02/2015
Hetty Pegler apparently owned the field in the C17th. Short stroll from the layby opposite in the snow. Got wet legs crawling in but once inside it was nice and dry. Would make a nice place to sleep, even having a number of bedrooms.Herbert Anchovy14/01/2015

From NE full anticlockwise spiral circuit walk, down through the woods and along the Cotswold Way under the steep wooded west side and back up to the roaD at the south then north and eventually in west to HPT. Crawled inside the barrow. Seemed to smell like a cross between fustiness and alcohol. Can't believe I lived in Cheltenham for twenty years without visiting it.vegibagger20/04/2014
