Guidebook to walking the 102 mile (163km) Cotswold Way National Trail between Chipping Campden and Bath, across the Cotswolds AONB. The route is described in both directions over 13 stages, each following the Cotswold escarpment, with dramatic and far-reaching views across the Severn Vale towards the Welsh hills, plunging down to visit honey-coloured villages, old market towns and the elegant and historic city of Bath. The longest of the 13 stages is 10 miles, the shortest 6 miles: these are dictated by the existence of overnight accommodation. For the determined, the trail can be walked in as little as five days.
The Cotswold Way offers a wonderful walker's landscape, featuring beautiful woodland, pretty cottages and ancient battlefields. The route can be walked all year round, and is suitable for beginner trekkers. It became a National Trail in May 2007, despite having been a much-loved walking route for more than 35 years. This guidebook is illustrated with maps and the author's own full-colour photographs. The stage-by-stage route description is accompanied by overview maps at a scale of 1:100,000 (1cm to 1 mile).
A more detailed map of the Way is supplied in booklet form, at a scale of 1:25,000, slid into the back of the book. A trek planner gives at a glance information about facilities, public transport and accommodation available along the way. The guidebook also provides background information on local geology, wildlife and history.
