Beschreibung

A guidebook to 30 circular walks in the Cotswolds, the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England. Ranging from 4 to 12 miles in length, the routes are graded from easy to strenuous, offering something for every walker. Fourteen of the routes described include sections of the Cotswold Way National Trail, a 102-mile walk that winds its way from Chipping Campden to Bath. Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:50,000 mapping. There is plenty of information on the many points of interest passed en route, including Roman ruins, ancient stone circles, Neolithic long barrows and historic villages. Also included is a useful route table summary, information on accommodation, and details on the region's geology, landscape, plants and wildlife. Covering 790 square miles, the Cotswolds is home to lush green hills, picturesque valleys and beautiful beech woodlands. The impressive Edge - a remarkable limestone escarpment - offers ethereal views across the Vales of the Severn, Berkeley and Gloucester to the Malverns and the distant mountains of Wales.

Autorentext

Damian Hall is a freelance outdoor journalist who grew up in Nailsworth and still lives in the Cotswolds. He has completed many of the world's famous and not-so-famous long-distance walks, including Everest Base Camp trek for his honeymoon and Australia's Six Foot Track, where a hungry possum stole his walking boot. He contributes regularly to outdoor and fitness publications, including Country Walking and Outdoor Fitness, and writes walking guidebooks, including the official Pennine Way guide, a guide to the Somerset Coast Path and Cicerone's Walking in the Cotswolds. Damian is a member of the Long Distance Walkers Association, the Backpackers Club and the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild. And there's plenty more about him where all this came from, at damianhall.info and on Twitter, @damo_hall.
