I'm responsible for discounts and the Cotswold Outdoors Discount has been in existence for 10 years or so since I set it up....

I've contacted other companies such as Go Outdoors. They have discounts with other organisations such as members or employees of the MOD, the Emergency Services, English Heritage, the Camping and Caravanning Club, DofE, The NCS or Online Youth Manager.

So if any LDWA members belong to these organisations you will be able to access additional offers through the member sections. If anyone wants to get a discount for your local group best to speak to the store manager and see if you can arrange something. They won't offer the LDWA any the moment!

In addition - or the same thing (?) - to a 'loyalty card', Cotswold Outdoor are among the many gear outlets which do discounts (theirs is 15%) on LDWA membership, and a code which is also valid for online purchases (they also do click and collect from nearest local store). See

for the discounters list, which also includes

Anquet maps, Craghoppers, Memory Map, Merino, Satmap, TGO magazine, Tracklogs.

(My recent experience of discounters includes only Cotswold.)

Yes I have twice taken back boots to Cotswold Outdoor without quibble and they are the same make, Salomon. The first pair lasted about 8 months and the second, bought in January, had worn through at the flex point and right through the fabric at the back of the heel to a hard edge by May when I again took them back and got a replacement. Recently other walkers seeing me wearing the Salomons straightaway asked whether I had problems with them wearing out ridiculously quickly, as they said they did.
