The 20 walks included in this book are chosen to see a wide range of Cotswold towns and villages and to walk across stunning scenery and visit many historic locations.
Discover The Cotswolds
It has been a particular village, landscape or historic feature which has determined the choice of walks, including such locations as the Roman villa at Chedworth, the old canal at Sapperton, Fairford church, Woodchester Mansion, the amazing water features of the Cotswold Water Park. These walks are not intended to be strenuous. Although a steep hill may be encountered in a few of the walks, for example Wotton-under-Edge, they are mostly gentle walks, and quite short in mileage. The aim is to provide an interesting day out with a short walk, a good lunch in one of the many pubs, and a visit to a feature of interest in the area.
