Cross-Cotswold Pathway

Cross-Cotswold Pathway

Cross-Cotswold Pathway

by: Macmillan Way Association
This 86-mile walking route across the Cotswolds from Banbury to Bath is based largely on the Cotswold section of the main 290-mile coast to coast Macmillan Way. The route covers the cream of Cotswold country, so much of which lies hidden away from the normal visitor. The Cross-Cotswold starting and finishing sections have been specially planned to provide walkers with the best possible bus and train links to the northern and southern ends of the Cotswolds; hence the Banbury start and Bath finish.

The route follows existing footpaths, bridleways and byways and small stretches of minor roads when these are unavoidable. From Banbury it heads westward across the rolling Oxfordshire Cotswolds, soon passing lovely Broughton Castle. It then follows the course of a Roman road almost to the village of Epwell, where it joins the Macmillan Way, the course of which will then be followed all the way to Box in Wiltshire. From Box the route heads westward and crosses the Avon before joining the Kennet and Avon canal towpath which it follows into Bath.

The guide contains detailed route directions divided into three chapters covering all 86 miles. There are 19 double page spreads each with inter-relating text, map, and colour photographs. Clear coloured sketch maps detailed route-finding instructions together with all the necessary practical information make navigation and planning straightforward. GPS waypoints and details of places of interest along the way are included. There is also an introduction to the 'Cotswold Round'.
