The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds area is one of England's favourite destinations; famous for hundreds of honey-colour limestone villages in a beautiful rural setting. With its long agricultural history, care of the land, continuity of ownership and the fact that the Industrial Revolution mainly
passed it by, it's not hard to see why the Cotswolds are so beautiful.
The wealth of the Cotswolds was derived from agriculture and medieval trade in wool. Cotswold sheep had a heavy
fleece and commanded high prices. Merchants built houses and manors, and invested in the afterlife by building churches, known as 'wool churches'. Painswick, Northleach, Fairford and Cirencester are great examples.
With over 5000km of footpaths and rights of way, the Cotswolds is great walking country. For serious walkers, the Cotswold Way or Thames Path are on offer; for recreational walking, most towns and villages have well known shorter circular routes.
The name Burford is said to mean a defended settlement by a ford – an ideal setting for a settlement to develop at the easy crossing of the River Windrush.The high wide ridge running east / west made for dry animal herding and trading routes. One and a half miles east deeply carved tracts show the path of an old salt road going down to the Windrush at Widford. Here the chapel is built on the site of a Roman villa – a fragment of a mosaic pavement is still visible in the pews.
The gentle rolling hills of the surrounding countryside are perfect for walking, cycling or horse riding. People have lived and worked here for over 6,000 years. Nestling along the slope of the hill down through the trees to the River Windrush, Burford is steeped in history and rich in architectural heritage. The local natural scenery is breathtaking, the Cotswold stone buildings, famous. The area boasts some of the most beautiful gardens in England, a world heritage site with Blenheim Palace and a network of dry stone walls at least in length equivalent to the Great Wall of China.
Burford itself has a broad main High Street lined with old houses, cottages and shop fronts which appear to have changed little for hundreds of years. Take time to explore the side streets and snatch glimpses of hidden treasures through intriguing alleyways and courtyards between the seventeenth and eighteenth century buildings. See the awe inspiring splendour of the cathedral like parish church built from the wealth of the wool trade. Investigate the delights the independent shops and galleries have to offer, take refreshment from the wide choice of hotels, pubs and teashops.
The town is perfectly placed as base to explore the other famous towns and villages of the surrounding area including Oxford and Cheltenham and other attractions too.
