Welcome to the Cotteswold Naturalists' Field Club Website

The Cotteswold Naturalists’ Field Club is arguably the oldest club of its kind in England. It has witnessed major advances in natural history, geology, agriculture, rural economy, archaeology and local history. However, we like to think that little has changed in the intervening years in relation to the Club’s interests and sense of fellowship, other than to add that membership is open to all. We should also record that collecting specimens on our field meetings is much more limited, many species and sites now being protected by law.
