North Cotswold Diamond Way - Short Walks

North Cotswold Diamond Way - Short Walks

by: Elizabeth Bell
The 30 Sparkling Short Walks in this book are all circular and follow sections of the North Cotswold Diamond Way. The 60-mile Diamond Way was devised in 1995 by the North Cotswold Group to celebrate 60 years of the Ramblers' Association, its Diamond Jubilee. The first book, North Cotswold diamond Way (above), was intended for walkers who wanted to progress around a long linear walk in stages. This book still follows the route of the Diamond Way, but as 30 easy circular walks.

The route was specially designed to go through some of the many delightful small villages with their golden stone cottages and welcoming pubs. Most of these serve lunches. The terrain is varied and interesting, sometimes across open fields with stone walls, often through little spinneys or along banks of streams. There are no really steep climbs as the hills are gently undulating and provide very pleasant views. As far as possible lesser known footpaths have been used.

The guide provides detailed route finding directions and large scale sketch maps with the route clearly highlighted. The walk starting locations are:
