England has an extensive network of well-marked footpaths and bridle ways, many of them dating back centuries, and the public has the right to travel them even when they cross private land. Much of the Cotswold Way is on these trails.
The Cotswold Way is a long distance walking Trail that runs between the market town of Chipping Campden in the north and the city of Bath in the south. The Trail is 102 miles long, and runs for most of its length on the Cotswold escarpment. It passes through many picturesque villages and has gorgeous views along the way. It’s close to a significant number of historic sites, for example the Roman heritage at Bath, the Neolithic burial chamber at Belas Knap, Sudeley Castle near Winchcombe, Hailes Abbey and many beautiful churches and historic houses. The Cotswold Way has existed as a promoted long distance walk for over 30 years. The Cotswold Way was formally launched as a National Trail in May 2007 and this designation is a very special one as there are only a few other Trails in England with this special grading.
