Dress for the conditions and remember weather can change quickly. We would recommend good comfortable walking boots, walking trousers and, depending on the season, waterproof jacket and over trousers, warm clothing with plenty of layers (fleece and base layer shirt), gloves and a hat. Jeans are not a good idea as once wet they become pretty cold and uncomfortable. Don’t forget your packed lunch and water, some plasters for cuts & blisters and a daysack to carry it all in.
Getting kitted out need not cost a fortune. The Ramblers Association has arranged discounts with Cotswold Outdoor. For others see here.
