Fresh air and fun Cotswold walks for all the family at half term

Share this article

Ancient settlements, an Iron Age hill fort and the wonderful autumn colours of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) are all waiting to be discovered during the October half term break.

The Cotswolds Conservation Board is providing a programme of short family strolls across the AONB, which are designed to provide families with the opportunity to get out and about over the school holidays.

“The walks will provide an ideal opportunity for families to find out more about the countryside around them and to enjoy the autumn colours in the Cotswolds” said Dave Scott, one of the Cotswolds Conservation Board’s 340 Voluntary Wardens.

The strolls are led by voluntary wardens and representatives of a range of local conservation organisations and are ideal for younger members of the family. Covering short distances at an easy pace, each walk focuses on a particular theme, such as wildlife or woodlands.

It is all part of a wider walks programme that can be found in the Cotswold Conservation Board’s newspaper, The Cotswold Lion.

Visit pages 8-11 of the online version of the Lion for the walks listings http://www.cotswoldsaonb.org.uk/files/uploads/Autumn-Winter08.pdf (half term walks are highlighted in pink and bear a family logo), or pick a copy of the Cotswold Lion up from your local Tourist Information Centre /  library.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the walks, dogs will not be allowed.
