After leaving the flat arable countryside in Warwickshire, the last 20 miles of the Heart of England Way passes through the picturesque landscapes of the north Cotswolds, with rolling countryside and quaint towns and villages. Especially attractive are Chipping Campden with it’s beautiful wool church and handsome High Street, and Blockley, which was once a centre of production of silk thread. The trail ends after 102 miles (165 km) in Bourton-on-the-Water, a popular village sometimes known as ‘Little Venice”.
Furthermore, the architecture also changes between the two area. Moving from the brick and timber-framed houses of Warwickshire and the midlands plain to towns and villages built in the honey coloured limestone so characteristic of the Cotswolds.
Not only that, there is good signposting in the Cotswolds as well!
Here are a few photos of what you will see along the Heart of England Way in the Cotswolds.
