A tour of Cotswolds villages

I was a bit surprised that Trish said over dinner last night that she had never heard of Bibury or Burford.

So I suggested a change of tack and a tour of Cotswolds Villages.

And so to the aforementioned Bibury - you need to get here early as it packs out! A coach load of Japanese tourists all armed with cameras for instance!

Some of us ahem fed the ducks! And enjoyed Trout vs Duck races !

St Mary, Bibury

There's always one!

The next stop was Fairford, as we were driving along there was a sign for its "World Famous Church". Why is world famous? said Trish well....

St Mary's Fairford

Just up the road is Burford. The car park was packed - a shock for me as I normally eat my breakfast there when I arrive in the Cotswolds. The car park is by the River Windrush and you get some other visitors....

St John's Burford

The tomb of Henry VIII Barber, with South American Indians!

And so to the final village, Lower Slaughter

Well that's the trip as I'm off home tomorrow. Although you will see some more of the Cotswold over the next week or so!

Love the Cotswold pictures, Pete. The two churches look well worth a visit - no wonder the one is world famous!

Sounds like you both had a great holiday - thanks for sharing and have a safe journey home.

Wonderful pictures. I'm getting jealous of all your travels. Love the statues and tombs. The church windows are marvelous.
