The Gloucestershire Way provides a continuous walk of 100 miles through the distinctive areas of the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale and Cotswold, conceived on the theme of 'Forest and Vale and High Blue Hill' from the poem 'A Song of Gloucestershire by Will Harvey of Minsterworth. Beginning at Chepstow the route passes through Cinderford, Gloucester and Stow-on-the-Wold before finishing at Tewkesbury.

The guide breaks the route down into eight sections each with a separate chapter. The clear route descriptions are accompanied by excellent, clear sketch maps together with a wealth of anecdotal information printed in italics to distinguish it from route instructions. The text is delightfully enhanced by the inclusion of carefully chosen excerpts of poetry by Gloucestershire poets.

The Gloucestershire Way is a memorable ramble, traversing three very distinct countryside landscapes, and is likely to appeal to many types of walkers including families. Mainly on field and woodland paths usually maintained in excellent condition and waymarked by Gloucestershire County Council.
