The Cotswolds and beyond Page 2 of 3

Not all villages are as well known, and today many still hold their secrets. Amongst the treasures to be found are ancient sites - perhaps a roman villa or a "lost" village - or an unspoiled historic church which seems to have been left behind by modernisation over the years. Open the church door and discover a hidden world of history, still in use.

It may be a simple stone bridge spanning a crystal clear stream or an unassuming country pub serving a locally-brewed beer and good food. These are all examples of harmony between man and his environment, a respect for continuity in a changing world.

Two things above all give the Cotswolds their special warmth and richness: the soft natural limestone and the wealth of the wool trade in medieval England centuries ago which has left its legacy in the high quality stone buildings for which the area is renowned.
