Event Details


Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

Starting from the quaint Cotswold village of Stanton, we follow the Cotswold Way across pasture land to Stanway, another quiet and picturesque Cotswold hamlet, with its thatched cricket pavilion and grand manor house.

After a short break for coffee we commence a long steady climb through woodland to reach the top of the Cotswold escarpment, for more fine views, including the distant lavender fields.  A short easy walk along the escarpment brings us to the idyllic village of Snowshill, where we stop for a picnic lunch on the village green, next to the pretty little church which may be recognisable to fans of Bridget Jones.

There are good paths for most of the 8.5 miles, but some open fields and rough paths in places, meaning walking boots are a must.

Weather permitting we should get some great views of the Vale of Evesham, Broadway Tower and the distant hills.
