50 Walks in Gloucestershire

50 Walks in Gloucestershire

by: Christopher Knowles
Gloucestershire has almost everything to make it a delightful county for discovering on foot. Within its boundaries are exceptionally varied landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watershed of Britain's longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring. Beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley, a border country with a distinctive mix of Celtic and Anglo-Saxon traditions.

This well-established guide explores some of the best of Gloucestershire's varied countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. Together they provide a balanced appreciation of Gloucestershire's character. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
