The Cotswolds

The Roman came and went, the Anglo-Saxons began to settle and the influence of medieval lords of the manor all added to the pattern of the Cotswolds landscape we have today. The village, the church and the parish, the system of farming in open fields and the creation of market towns all helped to changed the countryside. This book is one of the best works portraying the Cotswolds.
