Short Walks in the Cotswolds

Short Walks in the Cotswolds

by: Jill Brown and David Skelhon
The beautiful Cotswolds, with its rolling hills and pretty little villages, is perfect walking country. The distinctive local limestone, varying in hue from yellow to cream and gold, inspired J. B. Priestley to say that the stone from which the characteristic dry stone walls and pretty little houses are built have 'the trick of keeping the lost sunlight of centuries glimmering upon them'.

This guide, produced in co-operation with the Ramblers and featuring full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 mapping, is the perfect way to really appreciate the gentle beauty of this area. There are twenty easy walks, all less than five miles in length and suitable for families. There are clear route instructions, colour photographs and fact-files giving distance, time, terrain and notes on points of interest.
