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.'

Distance (miles)28
Starting fromWinchcombe
Overview

'Linking the Cotswold Way at Winchcombe with the Oxfordshire Way at Bourton-on-the-Water the Windrush Way goes over the hills with only the remains of "lost" medieval villages en route to the River Windrush in Bourton, whereas its sister route, the Wardens' Way, winds through the villages. The waymarked Wardens' Way and Windrush Way (both 14 miles and shown on OS mapping) therefore provide alternative high and low level routes respectively from Winchcombe to Bourton-on-the-Water.'
