About Stow-on-the-Wold


Stow-on-the-Wold lies within the heart of the Cotswolds area and demonstrates outstanding natural beauty. It is the highest town in the Cotswold’s at about 800 feet above sea level and was built mainly in the 17th and 18th century after the Battle of Stow - the last battle in the English Civil War, and has witnessed secluded growth and prosperity throughout the Iron, Stone and Bronze Ages.

The Cotswolds Wool Town is situated just beside the Roman Fosseway set on a rounded hill giving it the Iron Age meaning of ‘meeting place on the hill’.
