Fantastic journal of the Cotswolds Way. Had thought about doing it this year and I think it a must for next summer, especially after walking the last few trails in the North.

Great photographic record of the walk too, you have a real eye for it.

Weather wise, have you noticed that spring seems to be the most settled time of the year now?

Thanks Ron - I'm glad you enjoyed it.

You're right that late April / May seems to be the best time for a long walk, and I tend to plan all mine to coincide with this.

One thing I would be interested in is the number of potential wild campsites along the route, if there is the opportunity for a discreet camp or if it is just not practical?

I suppose there are plenty of woods along the way and sheltered spots in fields etc. To be honest a lot of it is agricultural land. But I suppose the old adage of 'arrive late and leave early' would be OK.

I never really look at it from a camping point of view as I never camp out anymore.

If you read through this link you'll see he managed to sleep under the stars ok -
