Published exactly 100 years after Holst began work on The Planets, the route visits many of the places that were important to the young Holst as his musical career took wing. Among the highlights are the house in Cheltenham where he was born (now the Holst Birthplace Museum) and several venues in the Cotswolds where he played, conducted and taught music. The richly illustrated guidebook divides the walk into five easy/moderate sections (with four optional detours) and includes detailed maps, points of historical interest and all the practical information you need to follow in Gustav Holst's footsteps from Cranham to Wyck Rissington.

These houses inspired William Morris to form the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. Its churches, built on wool-wealth from sheep, are without equal. Fascinating information panels provide anecdotes and facts about the places you will see. All routes have been checked out on the ground and use rights of way or cross public access land. Many of these paths are incorporated into recognized long-distance trails, several of which we sample.
