Cotswold Holiday

Donnington, Broadwell & Stow-on-the-Wold


 

 

We set out for a day's walking, much of it on fairly empty minor roads such as this 

 This is said to be where the last battle in the Civil War was fought

 and has a small monument with a plan of the battle

 but some historians now doubt it is the site as recent excavations revealed no traces of the battle

 Coming into Donnington. The area around Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest part form some distance around
    
St Paul's Church Broadwell
    
 "Monument to Herbert Weston, died 1635, his wife and child comprising alabaster figures. Kneeling at a prayer desk under a Renaissance canopy flanked by free-standing columns. Painted heraldic shield above flanked by pointed finials."

 

 Rose family graves

 'Bale' tombs in the churchyard - the tops were thought to represent bales of wool

 They are common in the Cotswolds and this is possibly the best collection of them

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Next to the church

 

 

 As we walked down from Broadwell to Stow-on-the -Wod there was a view of the converted remains of the windmill at Oddington

 and this large house

 We passed two wells - this was the lower and larger of the two

 

 Parsons Corner
