One of VITA Digital Productions' unique Virtual Walk Series
(All photos on this page are actual still frames from the DVD.)
This new DVD,
the second in the Cotswold Villages series, has a 60 minute widescreen virtual walk
through five more quaint villages in the Cotswolds
and is the perfect companion to a
treadmill, Nordic Track, elliptical, or exercise bike. It is also the perfect gift
for friends and family.
Just place it in a DVD player, step onto your treadmill, and instantly
you will be taking a scenic walk in five more beautiful areas in the Cotswolds:
the villages of Snowshill, Castle Combe, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stanton, and Bibury.
These are some of the most famous and picturesque villages in the Cotswolds. William Morris called Bibury
"the most beautiful village in England," and Castle Combe has been used as the quintessential
English Village in numerous motion pictures and television programs.
Filmed with state-of-the-art professional television cameras and camera
stabilization equipment, the camera seems to float
as it transports
you through these delightful villages.
This is not a traditional travel video.
The television camera is constantly moving you forward, transporting the viewer
through each one of these five charming Cotswold Villages.
You are "experiencing" an Autumn day in the Cotswolds -
known throughout the world for its peace, tranquility, and scenic beauty.
The 60 minute walk is accompanied by the natural sounds
just as they were recorded in each village.
Exercising has never been easier or more enjoyable!
And these videos are so rich in details
that you will notice something new every
time you view them.
But you don't have to have an exercise bike or treadmill
to enjoy this DVD.
It also makes the perfect gift
for people who want to experience the Cotswolds in a totally unique way:
a way not possible with traditional travel videos.
A Description of the Walk on this DVD
The first part of your 60 minute walk begins outside of the charming village of Snowshill. Walking down
the hill and past some typical honey-colored cottages, constructed of local limestone, you eventually
reach the center of Snowshill.
Continuing on with your walk, you pause for a moment beside the Church of St. Barnabus
and its old graveyard with so many stories to tell.
Your walk through Snowshill pauses periodically to contemplate the various quaint cottages
found here before leaving the village by way of a tree-lined road.
Your walk continues as you next enter the village of Stanton.
Walking behind an elderly gentleman out for a stroll, you stop to take in a lovely
thatched-roofed cottage on the outskirts of Stanton.
Further on, a group of riders pass as you enter into the center of this traditional
Cotswold village. Everywhere you look, green plants are thriving.
Following the "Cotswold Way" road post, you leave Stanton and next enter into
the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water.
The River Windrush flows through the heart of this popular Cotswold village. Your walk
follows the footpath beside the river as it cuts through the village.
The idyllic village of Bibury is next on your walk. Starting at the Church, you soon pause at
the famous Arlington Row, certainly one of the most well-known sites in the Cotswolds.
Further on, your walk takes you beside Rack Isle, where dyed woolens were once hung to dry,
and on through the village and past the historic Swan Hotel.
And last, your hour-long walk takes you into arguably the most scenic village in all of the Cotswolds,
Castle Combe. You follow a narrow forest footpath, and suddenly the village appears - as if by magic.
Exploring the village, your walk takes you first into the parish church built in 1434.
In this quiet and tranquil church, an effigy of a knight in a suit of chain mail
has rested for centuries.
After a complete walking tour of this picturesque village, your 60 minute
walk ends at the By Brook.
