Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are often thought of as the most English bit of England with all the picturesque charm that image brings. Small towns, stone cottages, rural etc.

Actually a range of hills stretching from Gloucestershire, through Oxfordshire and into Warwickshire and also touching on neighbouring counties (Wiltshire, Somerset and Worcestershire).

It is the home of many of the surviving Morris traditions which have been termed 'Cotswold' simply because of their being collected there by (principally) Cecil Sharp at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.
