  • Overview

    All the mapping you need to complete the Cotswold Way National Trail between Chipping Campden and Bath, across the Cotswolds AONB.

    An accompanying Cicerone guidebook - The Cotswold Way - describes the full route in both directions with lots of other practical and historical information. NOTE: The accompanying guidebook includes a copy of this map booklet.

    Following the Cotswold escarpment, the Cotswold Way provides 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.

    This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the Cotswold Way, along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend. It is conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or top of a rucksack and comes in a clear PVC sleeve.
