Walking the Cotswold Way

Beginning in Chipping Campden, the Cotswold Way National Trail follows the escarpment down its western ridge with far-reaching views across the Severn Vale towards the Welsh hills. Plunging down regularly to visit honey-coloured villages and old market towns along the way, the trail finishes 102 miles later at the elegent and historic city of Bath.

The landscape is both soft and dramatic as you follow the bays and spurs of the escarpment, along deeply cut dry valleys, and past ancient burial mounds and drystone walls - rural southern England at its best.

  • Ideal for a first long-distance walk.
  • Route described in both directions.
  • Comprehensive planning information and notes on sights along the route.
  • Separate Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map booklet provided.

Please note two corrections to the map booklet that accompanies the 2016 edition of Walking the Cotswold Way.

On page 18 of the map booklet, the route is incorrectly shown between Crickley Hill and The Air Balloon pub. The correct route (as described in the guide) continues along the southern end of The Scrubbs as far as the roundabout by the pub, then alongside the A417 to the telephone box shown on the map.

On page 26 of the map booklet, the start/finish symbol at Middleyard should be a little to the north of that shown, as Stage 7 (southbound)/Stage 6 (northbound) end by King’s Stanley Baptist Church.

With thanks to David Jupe for this information.
