These adjoining Cotswold parishes form part of a natural amphitheatre which halted the southerly advance of the last major Ice Age. Crossed by ancient saltways, two Roman roads, and the ‘Kings Way’ from London to Oxford and Worcester, these parishes lie at the boundaries of competing geographical and historical influences. They have also attracted national attention. This book reveals how much there is to these rural, but progressive, villages and estates and in so doing celebrates the vitality of these historically interdependent communities. All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 200 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up this thriving community.
