Welcome from the Chair
Since we started in 2009, each year we set ourselves new initiatives to promote walking in the Cotswolds, especially in Winchcombe and the message has reached the other side of the world. Our website is now a must for walkers visiting the area and our website is listed in national papers and magazines, guide books and dedicated walking websites.
We are proud we get no financial assistance from any local authorities and generate our own income from our supporters and publications.
We created and launched the Winchcombe Way and the Isbourne Way. Our researched self-guided walks are immensely popular and are often downloaded from our website.
Our Walking Festival attracts people from all over the country and brings money into the local economy. Businesses continue to support us and they are very accommodating when we show visitors from afar around the town.
The road signs leading into the town, displaying ‘Walkers are Welcome’ makes Winchcombe that bit special.
Our latest achievement is the new riverside footpath, an accessible path that is suitable for the very young and old, including wheelchair users and is proving very popular.
