Painswick

Gloucestershire

This epitome of an English town stands on the western edge of the Cotswolds, overlooking one of the five valleys between Stroud and Gloucester. Originating form the wool trade, its narrow streets and architecture, created from locally quarried limestone make  it a popular place to visit.

The Parish church of St. Mary holds much historical interest, and nearby, the unique 18th century Rococo Gardens offer spectacular views over the Cotswold countryside.
