The Cotswolds - 10 Leisure Walks

The Cotswolds - 10 Leisure Walks

by: Rodney Legg
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.

Direction, distance and terrain are described in detail for a series of ten circular walks varying in length from five to twelve 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 it's working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer.

Clear route directions are provided together with sketch maps and the guide is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket. 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 are sampled.

Broadway Tower and Village - 5 miles
Stanton and Snowshill - 5 miles
