Any feedback on which is the more useful guidebook. I don't want to carry 2 if at all possible frown

The Cotswold Way 2010 (National Trail Guides, Anthony Burton
Cotswold Way: Chipping Campden to Bath (Trailblazer British Walking Guides, Tricia Hayne, Bob Hayne.

As I live in Western Australia I can't easily browse them. So any feedback on either would be much appreciated
I am hoping to walk in May.

And btw, Bliss 60, your posts were very helpful, thankyou.

Glad to be of service. I used the National Trail Guide by Anthony Burton - which was perfectly adequate - good maps (although you probably won't need them, because the CW is so well signposted - as a rule of thumb if you don't see a Cotswolds Way sign for a quarter hour - you've probably gone the wrong way) and good description of things en route. I don't know the other book.

I walked the Cotswold Way last September and found the Burton book to be the best. The route is very well marked. There is also another book that I picked up in London called "A Guide to the Cotswolds" by Richard Sale that was great for historical information for many of the sites and villages on the route. Hope you enjoy your walk.
