It describes the unique and varied countryside in words and high-quality photographs, and includes historic and topographical information and descriptions of footpaths, villages, towns and cities along the way.
Guidebook to walking the Cotswold Way National Trail between Chipping Campden and Bath, across the Cotswolds AONB - which includes both a guide to the route and a separate mapping booklet. The 102 mile (163km) route is described in both directions over 13 stages, of between 6 and 10 miles, depending on the existence of overnight accommodation. Camping options are sparse along the route. This guidebook is illustrated with maps and the author's own full-colour photographs. The stage-by-stage route description is accompanied by overview maps at a scale of 1:100,000 (1cm to 1 mile). A more detailed map of the Way is supplied in booklet form, at a scale of 1:25,000, slid into the back of the book. The Cotswold Way became a National Trail in May 2007, despite having been a much-loved walking route for more than 35 years. It follows the Cotswold escarpment, with dramatic and far-reaching views across the Severn Vale towards the Welsh hills, plunging down to visit honey-coloured villages, old market towns and the elegant and historic city of Bath.
In this new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's The Cotswolds (Slow Travel series), resident expert author Caroline Mills shares more of her favourite places in a region that remains as popular as ever. The area covered includes: the Cotswold AONB, the Cotswold escarpment, hills and valleys, the Wiltshire Cotswolds and the area known as the Four Shires, along with the lesser-known 'hidden' fringes of the Cotswolds. Also included are the three Cotswold 'gateways': Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath and Oxford. Caroline Mills has lived and worked in the region for over 40 years and writes in an entertaining and engaging first-person narrative combined with authoritative information. Organised in such a way to encourage you to slow down and make it easier to discover smaller areas in greater depth, the guide includes features such as interviews with locals who bring character to the region, activities to try with children, personally selected places to eat, drink and stay, coverage of the Arts & Crafts movement, and plenty of options for car-free travel: walking, cycling, river boats and local buses and trains. Cotswold Farm Park, home of Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, is also included. Featured within the guide are quirky events such as the Cheese-Rolling competition and Tetbury's Woolsack Races; numerous and distinguished breweries and micro-breweries, including the famous Hook Norton Brewery, Bath Ales, Uley Brewery and Stroud Brewery; Oxford University, the world's oldest, and the source of England's longest river, the Thames. The Cotswolds' rich and diverse man-made heritage includes many famous castles and country houses: Blenheim Palace, Sudeley Castle, Chavenage and Kelmscott; well-known abbeys such as Prinknash, Hailes; and gardens and estates including Painswick Rococo Garden, Westonbirt Arboretum and Highgrove. Roman history is covered, too, notably in Bath and Cirencester, together with the Fosse Way, one of the most important Roman roads in the country. The Cotswolds continues to endear itself to anyone who visits - its harmonious combination of quintessentially English villages, charming provincial market towns, interesting and appealing countryside and a wealth of local food-and-drink producers makes it an all-year-round destination, whether for a day trip, a quiet weekend away or a multi-week holiday. The region offers an incredible array of accommodation from unique country-house hotels to delightful farmhouse B&Bs on working farms, luxurious self-catering cottages to glamping and camping in secluded countryside. Visitors that have a particular passion or interest for gardens, the Arts & Crafts Movement, historic buildings, walking, horseriding or rural pursuits are well provided for within the Cotswolds.
Der neue Roman der Autorin des Bestsellers »Die dreizehnte Geschichte« William Bellman tötet als Kind eine Krähe, um seinen drei besten Freunden zu beweisen, wie gut er mit der Steinschleuder umgehen kann. Am Abend nach der Tat glaubt er, unter dem Baum, auf dem die Krähe saß, einen schwarz gekleideten Jungen zu sehen. Zunächst scheint dies kein schlechtes Omen zu sein: Als Jugendlicher beginnt William in der Wollspinnerei seines Großvaters zu arbeiten, sein Onkel ernennt ihn bald zum Teilhaber, und als die beiden plötzlich sterben, übernimmt William die Spinnerei und macht daraus ein Erfolgsunternehmen. Doch dann häufen sich die mysteriösen Todesfälle in seiner Umgebung, seine Frau und seine Kinder erkranken schwer. Und William begegnet immer wieder einer dunklen Gestalt, die ihm schließlich einen verhängnisvollen Pakt anbietet, um seine Existenz und sein Glück zu retten ... Eine kluge und fesselnde Geschichte, so unheimlich wie »Der Rabe« von Edgar Allan Poe und so parabelhaft wie »Das kalte Herz« von Wilhelm Hauff.
Kindheitseindrücke und -erlebnisse des kleinen Laurie in einem von der technischen Zivilisation noch unberührten, weltabgeschiedenen englischen Dorf um 1920.
