DOZENS of walkers put their best foot forward to celebrate the centenary of Minchinhampton Common.
Ramblers covered the common's six-mile boundary with a series of walks as part of a Beating of the Bounds event on Sunday.
Afterwards, volunteers from the National Trust, which has owned and cared for the common since 1913, arranged folk music and children’s activities including kite flying, a treasure hunt and fossil discovery.
The walks are part of a range of 100 years of Caring events following a successful evening of talks at Stroud Sub Rooms in May.
A special display at Minchinhampton Country Fair in September and an exhibition of art inspired by the common in October will follow.
