About North Cotswold

Some walks with North Cotswold ramblers (GR07)

A friendly Group that has been in existence for nearly 30 years and offers a varied and interesting programme of walks in the Cotswolds

throughout the year. We help local people enjoy walking and protect local footpaths. Walking is a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts health and happiness.
Walks are typically 6 – 10 miles at an easy pace. We welcome new members – our walks include a pub lunch which creates a more sociable atmosphere. The majority of our walks are centred in the North Cotswold Region but, for variety, we do ramble into other areas. Car sharing is encouraged when walking further afield.
Other Group activities include an annual Minibus walk enabling walkers to tackle linear long distance trails such as the Cotswold Way and Weekends Away in picturesque countryside or historic areas.
Group members also created the North Cotswold Diamond Way, a sixty-mile circular walk centred on Moreton-in-Marsh. Copies of the 2nd Edition (2011) of the Diamond Way are available at a cost of £6.00 + £1.60 p&p. A new edition (2012) of the popular North Cotswold Diamond Way as 30 Sparkling Walks is also available at a cost of £8.00 plus £2.00 p&p.
