Promoted walking routes
Many of the rights of way in South Gloucestershire are promoted through leaflets and websites. These routes vary from short circular walks designed to be easily accessible, to long-distance walking routes such as the Cotswold Way and Severn Way.
We also have an extensive network of bridleways and have developed a range of circular rides.
There are other organisations that could be organising a walk in your area – try The Ramblers Association or your local parish council or the Outdoor West website created in conjunction with South Gloucestershire, Bristol, and Bath and North East Somerset councils.
We publish, in partnership with the South Gloucestershire Heritage Forum, a series of leaflets detailing heritage trails around the area.
The leaflets show routes you can take by car, bus or on foot that include sites of particular interest.
- Hatters’ trails in South Gloucestershire
- Heritage walks in Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath
- Pucklechurch village trail
- South Gloucestershire industrial places trail
- South Gloucestershire non-conformist trail
- Tudor places heritage trail
If you would like to be sent a copy of the leaflet please contact us.
We are pleased to inform you that our South Gloucestershire Walking for Health programme is now officially accredited. To be an accredited scheme we needed to make some changes and revamp our programme. We now make sure that all of our Walking for Health walks are within the guidelines set out by the national team.
This includes making sure the walks are between 1/2 mile and 3 miles (all under roughly 60 minutes), easily accessible and over easy terrain.
If you have any questions regarding accreditation please feel free to get in touch.Is there anything wrong with this page?
