The area defined as the 'North Oxfordshire Cotswolds' extends from Wychwood Forest in the south to the Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire borders in the north. Although a typical Cotswold area, there are subtle differences between the Oolitic limestone district and the ironstone country further north - the Oolitic villages have a distinct West Country atmosphere, while the ironstone villages have a greater affinity with the South Midlands. The striking photographic comparisons within this book cover thirty different locations, including small towns or villages such as Adderbury, Deddington and Steeple Aston, as well as tourist attractions like Chastleton House, Broughton Castle, and the mysterious and evocative Rollright Stones. Stanley C. Jenkins informs and enlightens all those interested in the stunning landscapes that make up the 'North Oxfordshire Cotswolds'.
