Starting fromKing's Stanley
Overview

The Stanleys have some of the most interesting, varied and beautiful walks in the Cotswolds. We are also blessed with fine scenery, historical features, fine architecture and parks. To help you to enjoy them, King's Stanley Parish Council have published, for the first time, a guide to some of these public footpaths. These walks are of varying distance and demands from 1.5 miles to 10 miles long. Clear guidance is given to distances involved and possible difficulties such as step-over stiles, steep hills, mud and livestock.

Starting fromThe Red Lion, Arlingham
Overview

'There are four circular walks which are colour coded, named (Hare, Gloucester Cattle, Skylark & Salmon) and are approximately 4.5 to 5 miles long, so allow about 2.5 hours for each one (or go crazy and do all four). The directions for all walks begin and end at the main map board, which is adjacent to the side wall of The Red Lion. All walks have kissing gates and bridges. It may be helpful to refer to the Ordnance Survey, Outdoor Leisure 14. What you see will vary from season to season. Some of the walks may be a little muddy at times but there will always be good cheer and hearty food and drink available back at The Red Lion when you return.'

Overview

'The Rivers Thames and Severn are once again connected - this time by footpath. The footpath, known the Thames & Severn Way, has been marked out by volunteers from the Cotswold Canals Trust. It mainly follows the towpaths of the Stroudwater Navigation and Thames & Severn Canal between Framilode and Lechlade, but in places deviates on to other rights of way, such as the Thames Path.'
