Journey through time

The geology of the Cotswolds is so special that a swathe of land 60 miles long has been designated as the Cotswold Hills Geopark. The geopark brings new impetus to a cause that is supported by local authorities, voluntary organisations and industries ranging from tourism to quarrying.
