Cotswold Way Association

The Cotswold Way Association (CWA) is a charity created in 2016 by volunteers from the Cotswold Wardens and the Ramblers. Our aim is to ensure the best loved trails in the Cotswolds do not fall into disrepair.

The CWA commissions work to make improvements – the work being carried out by local volunteer organisations where possible, with the CWA paying for expenses and materials.

With a backdrop of cuts in public spending and resources we operate the CWA as a no frills, low cost operation – we spend your money where it needs to be spent – on the trails. The CWA engages with users to identify possible trail improvements over and above the basic maintenance requirements.
