The Cotswolds Conservation Board provides a guided walks and events programme throughout the Cotswolds. The Walks are led by the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, National Trust, Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust. All guided walks are free of charge unless otherwise stated, although donations are welcome.
Remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the walks leader beforehand for any changes to arrangements because of bad weather.
