The Central England/Cotswolds region
Tetbury is an old market town set in the Cotswolds, within easy reach of London, Oxford, Bristol, the Midlands and Wales. The region is famous for it's beautiful countryside, woodlands and picturesque villages and town, crafts and great food. It is ideal for that "get-away-from-it-all" break. It also hosts many festivals and events from the music events of Westonbirt Arboretum to horse trials of Badminton and racing in Cheltenham. There are ancient sites for the historians and family days out in the nearby towns of Bath, Bristol and Cirencester. It is also home to Highgrove Estate and quality products can be bought from the shop in the town.
Tetbury is an old market town and has historical roots back to the 600's. It was an established town by the 1600's and interestingly in 1633 the town of Tetbury was sold by its then owner Lord Berkeley to four local residents who were described as Feoffees in the legal bill of sale. This document also formalised the Thirteen, literally thirteen townsfolk to serve as elected town wardens. Today the Feoffees have charitable status owning a number of sites in and around town. They continue to this day as seven Feoffees, supported by the Thirteen. They are custodians of the town who work voluntarily for the good of Tetbury. The Market House was built in 1655. By the 18th and 19th Century its primary trade was in wool. It remained a trading place rather than an industrial town due to the size of the rivers and local topography.
It is set in the picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds with easy access to numerous walks, woods, and holsteries.
Market days are Wednesday and Saturday and a French Market is held once a month on a Friday. There are a number of other events, craft events and trading events on other days during the year. The town today is famous for it's numerous antique shops which offer a wide variety of quality items.
Highgrove shop offers high quality produce and products from the Highgrove Estate which is located just outside of Tetbury.
