I'd like to go camping there before the end of Summer.
I wondered if anyone who knew the area well would recommend specific areas/villages/towns for their local events, folklore and sites of historic interest? I haven't got much farther than thinking about taking in the Rollwrights. Cheers, CS

The Folk Division of the Camping Club of Gt Britain and N Ireland used to have an Easter camp every year at Blockley , as mentioned in the song -When I kept sheep on Blockley Hill !
There is ONE Folk Connection , and its a nice lttle village - Or at least , it WAS forty years ago !

Recommendations for associated good literature / maps / walks etc. would also be welcome.

Literature? I recently found in a used-book store a copy of Frederick Grisewood's memoir "Our Bill", about a Cotswold village odd-job man. I reckon he's the same F. Grisewood whose name appears in Granny's dance programmes from Moreton, back in the days when monarchs wore beards.

Visit Painswick - especially the churchyard there, with its myriad yew trees - wonderful place..oh, & Chedworth is beautiful too - a good idea is to get one of the booklets of guided walks, you'll discover some unbelievable scenery..

Rollrights is great. Have not been since we took the girls there in 2004. We all got the hiccups at the same time. Must have been the leylines. Make sure you see the King stone (over the road) and the Whispering knigts (nearby field).


this looks interesting

The church at Saintsbury has a nice Sheela-na-gig. If you like that sort of thing.
