Help to keep the Cotswolds special
The Cotswolds National Landscape is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), managed and looked after by the Cotswolds Conservation Board.
The Cotswolds AONB is a living, breathing, working landscape that is under greater pressure than ever before. By making a donation, however small, you will be making a direct contribution to the AONB, helping us to conserve this beautiful and special area for generations to come.
Donations made to the Cotswolds National Landscape are put towards work which helps us to conserve and enhance the countryside, nature, and heritage of the Cotswolds AONB.
Along with the fantastic work done by our Voluntary Cotswold Wardens, your donations will help us look after the natural environment, provide interpretation, map out routes for walking, cycling, and riding, and take care of footpaths and bridleways right across the Cotswolds. To give you an idea of the type of work undertaken by the Voluntary Wardens:
- It costs roughly £10 to lay 1 metre of hedgerow
- Around £15 helps us run our charcoal kiln, producing locally sourced charcoal
- £20 could provide around ½ day of woodland coppicing
- It costs around £80 – £100 to repair 1 metre of dry-stone wall
