Cotswold River Walks

Cotswold River Walks

by: Colin Handy
A book of circular walks in countryside unspoilt by time. Each one offers a chance to view the daily life of riverbank animals, birds and fish. From the secret worlds of badger and deer, the mysterious life of the water vole, the busy dance of the dipper, the flight of the kingfisher and patient hunting of the heron to the watery life of the trout. Cotswold River Walks brings you all of all these and more.

Today's popular watering spots for visitors include Bourton-on-the-Water, The Slaughters, Winchcombe and Burford, all of which are featured in this book along with twelve other picturesque places. The book is dedicated to those rivers with magical names including the Churn, the Windrush, the Leach, the Thames or Isis and to the footpaths and bridleways that accompany them. Each circular walk takes the rambler along a stretch of the river, allowing plenty of time to discover the hidden charms of the area. Many offer the opportunity to picnic by the quiet waters or just sit and watch the riverside wildlife at rest or play.

Clear navigation instruction together with some background information about the walks is supplemented with. detailed illustrated sketch maps. There are also some black and white photographs.
