Quagmire no more!

15th July 2015

Anyone who has walked the Cotswold Way near Winchcombe over the last year or so will be more than familiar with a particularly muddy and waterlogged gateway below Belas Knap. Water cascading down the hill congregated around a kissing gate making it all but impassable to walkers. But thanks to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of our volunteers, the Cotswold Wardens, and the cooperation of the landowner, a cheap and effective solution was found by simply moving the gate a little further up the slope.

Just another example of how the Wardens keep the Cotswold Way in tip top condition!
