The Windrush Valley

Availability: Out of stock

The Windrush is the largest of the Cotswold rivers. Running for about forty miles through parts of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, it is also the longest. It is the waterway that turned Bourton-on-the-Water into an inland resort, and it fl ows adjacent to the major tourist venue of Burford. It runs alongside historic Witney, and close to the picturesque Slaughters. This book begins with a description of the river, its uses in the past, the countryside through which it passes, and its value today. It then follows the entire course of the river from Snowshill, just north of its source, to the point where it debouches into the River Thames at Newbridge, describing all thirty-six towns and villages along the way. Those who wish to travel its length, or visit specifi c places, will fi nd this an invaluable guide. The book includes descriptions of the history and architecture of every place, the part played by the River Windrush in its past as well as now, and what is to be seen there by the visitor today. The book is illustrated throughout with the author's own photographs.
