Help Record Gloucestershire’s Stone Stiles

Farmer by Stone Wall

You can help to produce photographic record

Peter Wilson of Woodchester Valley is putting together a photographic record of all the stone stiles in Gloucestershire. The Council for the Protection of Rural England supports the project. Also eventually there will be an interactive online map with photographs and information about each stile. Peter hopes this will help preserve them.

What you can do

You can help by sending to send in details of the stone stiles you know about. There has already been a good response and about 300 have been recorded. I have reported four from around Stinchcombe. One by the bus shelter on The Street, two along the path to the east of Wick Lane and one on an old route to Clingre Farm. See The Galleries Page

Can anyone spot any others?  As the photographs of the three disused ones show, they may not look much like stiles. If you find one, this link gives details of how to contact Peter also you can download his form


I would be grateful if you could let me know too if you find others. If we find a few more we could possibly develop a walking route taking in our stone stiles, as Cam have done. Kath
