Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside
early on a summer morning, or in the evening
is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other
aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon
being assembled before your eyes - just
like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and
admire the view from the basket - no doors
closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all
out in the fresh air. Fantastic !
historical village of Frampton-on-Severn
is about 9 miles south of Gloucester and
close to The Noose area of the River Severn.
It is reached from the M5 motorway at junction
13 and after a short distance along theA38
onto the B4071. The surrounding land is
flat and low rising a little in the east.
Cricket is played during the summer on the
22 acre village green and local buildings
vary in design from medieval ‘cruck cottages’
to Victorian and Georgian elegant structures.
The local unploughed fields, canal, River
Severn and the Slimbridge Wetland Centre
to the south, ensure an abundance of birds,
plants and small mammals in the area.
