Butterflora

Back to Guided Walks page

Four miles of wandering (with a few short steep hills and rough ground) through some well known butterfly reserves and the surrounding countryside. We look down, rather than up, and see (if the seasons permit!) some of the great variety of wildflowers there.

The views from this walk are outstanding, and with luck, the flora will be spectacular. We will be travelling along lesser used footpaths and off-path on occasion, so stout footwear is required and be prepared for some short but steep ups and downs.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
