A Boot Up the Cotswolds
A Boot Up the Cotswolds
  • Description
  • Related

England's archetypal walking country, through lush valleys and up across limestone downland, the Cotswold Hills are delightfully peppered with warm honey-stone architecture. 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 recognised long-distance trails, several of which we sample.

Direction, distance and terrain are described in detail for a series of ten circular walks varying in length from five to 12 miles. They are graded for the degree of difficulty, so you know what you are letting yourself in for, and numerous refreshment points provide ample opportunity for pit-stops.They are designed to suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer.

The ten walks are:

Broadway Tower and Village • Stanton and Snowshill Moreton-in-Marsh and Longborough • Hailes Abbey and Farmcote • Guiting Power and Sudeley Adlestrop and Chastleton • Bourton-on-the-Water and the Slaughters • Cold Aston and Notgrove Chedworth and Fossebridge • Bibury and Ablington

Halsgrove’s small format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the area.

Rodney Legg is a prolific author and historian who has published hundreds of country walks. Nationally he is active in the environmental movement having been chairman of the Open Spaces Society since 1989 and a member of the ruling council of the National Trust from 1990 until 2009.
