Swansea Ramblers Walk
Coach Trip to the Cotswolds
18th June 2022
Leader: Tim Gronow
Swansea Ramblers had another of their coach trips to walk further afield.
This time we went to Cheltenham where we caught the steam train to Broadway.
We walked parts of the Cotswold Way and other routes to ascend to Broadway Tower then along the Cotswold Way again to Chipping Camden.
As we arrived in Chipping Campden, the rain started again but the coach was there waiting for us.
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.

When you join us for a Swansea Walk, ask us about the other walks and social events we do.
Off the coach and over to Cheltenham Station
The preserved steam railway will take us to Broadway
And we get on board
Assembling outside Broadway Station
Joining the Wychavon Way
We had a bit of rain
Had to divert around the area where they had excavated
Sheltering under the trees from a heavy downpour!
But we are on the Cotswold Way!
Edge of Broadway ahead
Braving the rain!
We didn't go into the centre of the Broadway
Starting the climb to Broadway Tower
There's the steam train again
There were lots of Orchids
At last! - The tower!
Having a catch up and recovering from the climb!
More Orchids on the way
The rain held off for a while
Reached Dover's Hill above Chipping Campden
Had a tea stop
Passed a Trig Point
Descending into Chipping Campden
Arriving too late to stop at a pub
The rain started as we arrived in the town
The coach was waiting in the high street
