The Cotswold Explorer is a documentary YouTube Channel started in 2016 by Robin Shuckburgh and Ross Arrowsmith. The project originally began as a food and drink programme featured on local television channel, That’s TV. The pair decided to bring their filming exploits online, and in 2017 began filming around famous Cotswold towns.
With Robin presenting, Ross producing, and faithful Widget (and now Gismo) at their heels, the channel grew steadily into what it is today, with a mixture of content. Exploring the Cotswolds, Hidden Gems in the Cotswolds and Haunted Cotswolds are just three of the main series produced, alongside short weekly travel videos. Vivienne Clark also heads up Cotswold Places, a sister site geared towards information and guidance to visitors and tourists.
