Woodlands in Summer

Back to Guided Walks page

Looking at the habitats of the wonderful Cotswold scarp at the height of summer – two woods of very different characteristics with limestone grassland, magnificent views and a couple of lovely villages thrown in. Bring suitable refreshment.

We are all familiar with the delights of spring flora in woods, as bluebells and garlic and all the others rush for the light, but there is a lot going on through the summer too for plants and animals.


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.
