England: Cotswold Towns and Villages

Some architectural views of Cotswold towns and villages.

Arlington Row, Bibary

Once isolated and rural, dependent on the wealth generated by the wool industry, the Cotswold area has some lovely legacy stone built houses and villages.

Broadway

Lower Slaughter

The area now houses well heeled downshifters sitting beside their Agas reading about themselves, a glass of fine wine and good cheeses to hand and perfect gardens waiting visits from a Chelsea grandchild.

Burford

Cheltenham is the big shopping centre, with exclusive designer outlets and rows of beautiful regency townhouses.

The honeypots of Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway and Stow-on-the Wold fill with tourists in the high season, but there are some lovely towns further from the tourist trails. My firm favourites being Painswick near Stroud and centrally located, Chipping Campden.

Chipping Norton

Sudely Castle Tyth Barn

The views on this page work well as monochrome subjects; it seems to suit the “old fashioned” ethos of this Heart of England region.
