South Cotswold

Group name: South Cotswold

This group is a part of Gloucestershire Area.

Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

We love walking in the scenic South Cotswolds and Berkeley Vale, whether alone, with family and friends, or with group or club. Our members report path problems and try to get action for all walkers. We have financed about 25 kissing gates with money raised from sales of our popular walks books. If you like the idea of walking with a friendly group, making new friends, seeing the countryside, why not try us? We have various types of walks: Mondays are Start The Week gentle 4 mile sociable strolls, average 1.5 mph. On Wednesdays and Saturdays we do half and full day walks, with two walks to choose from once a month (one may be strenuous). Average speed 2 mph. Summer evening walks are organised too. Please meet for our Group walks at least 10 minutes before we start. Ring the leader at a reasonable time if you need advice. Please see our group website for more information and many, many photographs of walks. Do see our Messages Page before walking with us, in case there are any late changes. If you like walking alone or with friends, why not see details of our "Favourite South Cotswold Walks" books on our website, with detailed instructions for 33 walks in the area.
