Cotswolds Tour

Comments off



Today, I have collated images from a tour of the Cotswolds undertaken in 2007.

Here is Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, near Stratford upon Avon.
The cottage belonged to the prosperous Hathaway family and was the pre-marital home of William Shakespeare’s wife, Anne.

Croft Moraig (Mary’s Croft) consists of a circle of twelve heavy stones with a further two forming an eastern entrance. There is a cupmarked recumbent stone positioned on the south west bank.

This is a good example of a stone circle dating back about 5000 years. Access is easy.
