This beautiful Cotswold countryside boasts a wide variety of habitats and plants. The limestone grassland is extremely rich in plants, which in turn support a large variety of insects, especially butterflies. The Cotswolds is set in the heart of England, famous for its honey-coloured stone architecture and idyllic village scenes.
Stow-on-the-Wold is a small market town and civil parish in Gloucestershire. It is situated on top of an 800 ft (244 m) hill, at the convergence of a number of major roads through the Cotswolds, including the Fosse Way, which is of Roman origin. The town was founded as a planned marketplace by Norman lords to take advantage of trade on the converging roads. Fairs have been held by royal charter since 1330 and an annual horse fair is still held on the edge of the town.
Snowshill is a small Cotswolds village in Gloucestershire, England, located near Broadway, Worcestershire. An important early bronze age hoard was found outside Snowshill in the late nineteenth century. Excavated from a barrow in 1881, it includes a picrite battle-axe and bronze pin, dagger and spear-head.
Broadway Tower is a folly on Broadway Hill, near the large village of Broadway, in the English county of Worcestershire, at the second-highest point of the Cotswolds (after Cleeve Hill). Broadway Tower’s base is 1,024 feet (312 meters) above sea level. The tower itself stands 65 feet (20 meters) high.
Chipping Campden is a small market town in the Cotswold district. It is notable for its elegant terraced High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century. A rich wool trading centre in the Middle Ages, Chipping Campden enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants (see also wool church), most notably William Greville. Today it is a popular Cotswold tourist destination with old inns, hotels, specialist shops and restaurants. The High Street is lined with honey-coloured limestone buildings, built from the mellow locally quarried oolitic limestone known as Cotswold stone, and boasts a wealth of fine vernacular architecture. At its centre stands the Market Hall with its splendid arches, built in 1627.
