Cotswold Way -
Chipping Sodbury

Chipping Sodbury lies at the foot of the southern Cotswold escarpment below Dodington Park about 1.5 miles from the Cotswold Way. As the Chipping in its name implies, it was once an important market centre in medieval times and stands at the crossroads on the main route between Bristol, Oxford and London.  Chipping Sodbury has a long market square, or Chepynge, as it was called in the medieval times and hence 'Chipping'. Known as Broad Street, this is bordered with a wonderful assortment of houses from every period, but largely 17th-century Cotswold stone buildings or Georgian of mellow brick. Most of these are now occupied by bright and cheerful shops which still retain a lively country atmosphere.  Plenty of hotels and places to eat.

The Cotswold Way

The Cotswold Way is a long distance walking trail that spans over 102 miles (164km) of beautiful English countryside. With more than 20 stops, it passes through many picturesque villages and runs close to a significant number of historical sites such as Hailes Abbey, Sudeley Castle and the Neolithic Burial Chamber at Belas Knap. In 2007, it was formally recognized as a National Trail and has long been considered as an essentially English experience.
