North Cotswold Diamond Way

North Cotswold Diamond Way

North Cotswold Diamond Way

by: Elizabeth Bell
The North Cotswold Diamond Way explores some of the best countryside of the north Cotswolds. The route is 60 miles long and roughly a diamond shape, bounded in the north by Ebrington, in the east by Oddington, in the south by Northleach and in the west by Guiting Power. No part of the route is further than 11 miles from Stow-on-the-Wold.

The route was devised specially to go through some of the many delightful small villages, with their golden stone cottages and welcoming country pubs. The terrain is varied and interesting, sometimes across open fields with stone walls, often through little spinneys or along the banks of streams. The hills are gently undulating and provide very pleasant views.

The guidebook provides a comprehensive description of the route starting from Moreton-in-Marsh, although you could start anywhere. Very detailed sketch maps support the navigation text to make route finding easy. The whole Way was re-surveyed in 2010 for this new edition of the guide. Information on accommodation and lunch stops is also included. The route was devised for the Ramblers' Association Diamond jubilee and provides a great introduction to long distance walking.

Places visited include Aston Magna; Paxford; Ebrington; Chipping Campden; Broad Campden; Blockley; Hinchwick Manor; Crabs Corner; Taddington; Temple Guiting; Guiting Power; Notgrove; Northleach; Farmington; Bourton-on-the-Water; Wyck Rissington; Icomb; Bledington; Oddington; Adlestrop; Evenlode.

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.
