TUESDAY 23 APRIL THE COTSWOLDS BURFORD AND WITNEY
Burford`s famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its three-arched bridge and its impressive church, both sides of the street flanked by an unbroken line of ancient houses and shops. Little has changed over the centuries . Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping, especially antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with its restaurants, pubs and teashops. Half way down the hill is the 16th century Tolsey Building, which houses the Tolsey Museum illustrating the town`s social and industrial past. There are wonderful alleyways and side streets just waiting to be explored, the church is a fine gem.
Witney is the largest of the market towns in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and much of the architecture reflects the past prosperity of the woollen trade including the 17th century Butter Cross and Church of St Mary the Virgin with its 150ft spire.
