Walking in the Cotswolds

In 2013 we walked the Cotswold Way, from Chipping Campden to Bath, in the west of England. The Cotswolds are a very picturesque part of the country, where you can walk on trails and paths and find your own way that does not involve cars and roads.

A selection of three images from our walk are included here.

The Chipping Campden Market Square was built almost 400 years ago. Although this is a black and white image of the square, it is built in the typical honey-coloured stone that was quarried in this part of the country.

Hailes Abbey is on the route from Broadway to Winchcombe. The ruins were once a Cistercian monastery, and they are now managed by English Heritage.

Wesley House is located nearby in Winchcombe. It is a traditional heavy timber wood framed building which has been preserved and operates as a hotel and restaurant. We stayed for a night in the hotel, and I always had to watch my head on the low beams and doorways!
