Town marks national trail launch
Cotswold Way
A series of walks has been organised as part of the festivities
The Gloucestershire town of Dursley is celebrating the launch of the Cotswold Way as a new national trail.

The route, which stretches about 100 miles from Bath to Chipping Campden, is the 15th to be designated by the conservation group Natural England.

A series of 27 guided walks has been organised this weekend by the town's regeneration partnership Vale Vision.

The celebrations also include cookery demonstrations, rural craft stalls and a beer festival.

Organiser Shirley Hill said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for local people and for visitors from all over Gloucestershire to explore this beautiful part of the county."
