An ambitious 11-mile route, it follows public footpaths around the entire town boundary. It means that Stroud now joins Cheltenham and Gloucester in having a way-marked, circular walk which completely encircles the town.
“There are several way-marked trails such as the Cotswold Way that pass close by, but until now Stroud hasn’t had a route of its own,”explained Stroud resident and keen walker Debbie Hewitt, who created the route. “It offers fantastic views from each of the five valleys plus a stretch of canal. We hope this will be used by visitors and local residents as a way to visit many quiet, hidden corners of the town.”
The map is currently being updated. It will be available here once complete.
