The Cotswolds are a limestone area in Central Southern England, a region of generally gentle rolling hills that were once dominated by sheep farming (now largely arable). It was rich in the middle ages, from the wool, and much of its character remains unsullied by C21. This is not an ecological article, merely a few images of some of the towns, gardens and numerous country houses to the west of Oxford. So, sit back and just take in the sights.
Burford is a small town perched between a steep hill and a narrow medieval bridge. It boasts many up-market hotels and restaurants, bespoke shops and glorious architectural details on the properties. It is a street where it pays to be alert to details … so, ignore the shops!
