All in One
This was the first publication I produced. A Map-Guide close to my heart, and one that I believe improves with age. It was the acorn that set off my oak tree, and remains to this day, my favourite publication. It is the simple combination of the Map and the Guide that makes exploring the Cotswolds such a pleasure.

The Cotswolds epitomise the romantic notion of the traditional English
scene: picture-postcard images of rolling, green hills, overshadowing
villages of golden stone cottages, manor houses and majestic churches.
This image is no dream but is clearly evident when you walk the routes
described in this map-guide. And, no better way to experience the setting
of this dramatic architecture than to walk from village to village. But, first,
explore and savour the village from whence your walk begins. Then,
stroll through this rolling landscape of sheep pastures and drystone walls.

Glide through the cotswolds
The Cotswolds are ideal for the touring cyclist - representing England at its very best.
Long, winding lanes connect villages with beautiful churches, excellent pubs and
delicious tea rooms. The landscape these cycle routes pass through is rich in imagery,
from rolling pastures, dry-stone walls and trickling trout streams, to honey-coloured stone cottages in sleepy hamlets.
