Route

The only sections of the walk today, where you might encounter traffic, are leaving Chipping Campden and crossing some of the roads, particularly at Fish Hill. There are a few climbs and descents which are not particularly steep but which might be tricky during or after wet weather. 

The Cotswold Way is well marked so navigation should be easy. Look out for the acorn signs which are the National Trail markers.

Ausrüstung

Good comfortable boots or walking shoes are recommended. The ground can be quite soft and the paths are well used by walkers and riders. Whilst the terrain is not particularly difficult it can be muddy with some waterlogged stretches after heavy rain. Walking poles are an option if preferred. The British weather is changeable so waterproofs should also be carried just in case.

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike/or if you have an older phone, it might be beneficial to bring a power bank as a backup.

There are opportunities on today's walk to buy food and drink, however, ensure you bring enough snacks and fluids with you.
