Series: Through Time

15th September 2011
The development of the Tetbury that we are so familiar with today was closely associated with the wool trade, which enabled many of the buildings to be rebuilt in the most modern styles, to reflect the fortunes of the tradesmen. The outlying areas, on the other hand, were predominantly agricultural, and the work of the labourers was dependent on the seasons just as the Tetbury men were dependent on the woollen trade.In addition to Tetbury, the parishes of Ashley, Long Newnton, Beverston, Kingscote, Newington Bagpath, Ozleworth, Didmarton, Oldbury on the Hill, Lasborough, Westonbirt, Boxwell, Shipton Moyne, Cherington and Avening are all looked at in turn. Take a tour of Tetbury and District through this collection of photographs, old and new, and discover some beautiful and remote areas in this quintessential Cotswold location.
