Visit Stow-on-the-Wold and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. At an altitude of 800 ft, this is the highest town in the Cotswolds and is situated where eight roads meet. It is easy to understand that this was once the most thriving wool market in the kingdom. Daniel Defoe, long before he wrote Robinson Crusoe, records that the year he came to Stow Fair 20,000 sheep were sold. The large Market Place has an old Market Cross with a restored lantern head and some fine old gabled houses clustered around the square. Particularly notable is what was once the little Elizabethan Grammar School. The gabled and spired Town Hall has some good, and some not so good, paintings of outstanding figures of the Civil War and the Restoration. In a central niche is a statue of King Edward the Confessor looking across to another fine old house appropriately called St Edward's. Behind this stands the parish church, which is dedicated to St Edward. Each age from Norman times down to the present has added something of interest to this building. Norman walls were buttressed by the work of 13th-century masons and 13th-century quatrefoil tracery and good windows grace the north porch. The canopied sedilia in the moderately restored 14th-century chancel are interesting. The south aisle has a 17th-century. Flemish painting of the Crucifixion by de Craeyer, a pupil of Rubens. There is some good early glass, and some by the mid-l9th-century stained-glass revivalist, William Wailes, whose output seems to have been enormous. The church has a sturdy 15th-century tower. Cromwell imprisoned 1,000 captured Royalists in the church after one of his victories.
