The Cotswold Hills run in a large swathe through south central England, chiefly in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, but also parts of Somerset, Wiltshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. The local limestone characterises the area, providing the main building material for its towns and villages. The rolling hills were ideal for sheep farming in the Middle Ages and the area became a prosperous centre of the wool trade, with many fine buildings, including churches, dating from this period as well as later centuries.


A–Z of the Cotswolds delves into the history of this beautiful region. It highlights well-known landmarks, famous residents and digs beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser-known facts about the Cotswolds and its hidden gems. Significant moments in its history are covered as well as its notable buildings and natural landmarks.


This fascinating A–Z tour of Cotswolds history is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this part of England.
