The Cotswold Way

Clare Balding meets Graham Hoyland, who in 2015 fulfilled a childhood dream by walking the length of England, following the spring that spreads up the country at walking pace.

Clare Balding joins Graham Hoyland and his partner, Gina Waggott, as they retrace the steps they took last year along the Cotswold Way as part of their three month epic walk of five hundred miles, following the progress of the spring as it spread up England from the south coast to Gretna Green. They planted an acorn every mile and are thrilled to discover some of them have grown. They talk to Clare about the joy they felt in sharing this journey, their favourite rucksack snacks and their future walking plans.
