Gloucester Cathedral, river, tree topped hill, name on yellow discGloucestershire Way

Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire

151 km / 94 miles
A route through the Forest of Dean, Severn Plain and Cotswolds linking the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path National Trail to the Severn, Cotswold, Oxfordshire and Heart of England Ways. The guide also provides details of a link from Tewkesbury to the Worcestershire Way. See also Three Choirs Way.

The route near Stow on the Wold has been improved by the construction of a footpath to the west of Stow Hill. This is a safety measure to allow walkers to cross the Fosse Way at the top of the hill where there is a central refuge, rather than have to cross half way down where there are three lanes of fast moving traffic.
