This evening, I am posting information on the quintessentially English Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Hill which is located in central England, about  20 miles south of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Facts and information on Bourton-on-the-Hill:

  • Populated by honey coloured stone cottages, many of which date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
  • There is a church (illustrated below) and pub known as the Horse & Groom.
  • As the name suggests, Bourton is located on a steep hill which in days past was part of the main Worcester to London coaching route.
