Welcome to ...

The Cold Ashby Rambler


At the time of writing (15th September), we are still allowed to travel any distance in England for exercise and leisure provided we observe the so-called 'Rule of Six' outdoors and indoors. However, in Cold Ashby and most of the other villages featured on this site there is very little parking available during this crisis.

Consequently, The Rambler respectfully asks you to consider carefully whether you need to travel by car to walk and, if you do, to park with consideration for local residents. Obviously the social distancing rules must be followed and face coverings, now legally required in shops, could be used in residential areas.

Thank you so much for your continued interest.

Happy Rambling and 'Stay Alert'!
