walking routes launched
for Diamond Jubilee
A brand new series of circular walking route guides has been launched to help more people enjoy and explore the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Launched to coincide and help celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee this weekend, the new 14 walks have been created, designed, mapped and photographed by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the volunteer arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board.
The circular walks are between 2.5 and 5 miles in length and have been especially created to avoid any stiles along the way, therefore enabling easy access to the countryside for more people. In addition to a comprehensive route map and directions, each walk is accompanied by a page of fascinating stories and facts along the way, such as sites of historical interest, areas rich in wildlife, cultural icons, archaeological treasures, quirky features and some colourful characters from the past, providing added interest and information for walkers.
All 14 routes are available to download direct from the Escape to the Cotswolds website atwww.escapetothecotswolds.org.uk/jubilee, complementing the many other walking routes which have been devised by the Voluntary Wardens in previous years.
