On our first full day (last Tuesday), we had a morning coach outing to the Cotswolds, travelling through several villages, and stopping off here at the delightful Broadway in Worcestershire. Many of the buildings date back to the 1600s, when it was a major stopping place for the stage coaches that travelled between Worcester and London. It's been the inspiration to a number of writers and artists, and as well as having art shops, it also has several of the country's best art galleries. At over a mile long, its 'broad way' (High Street), from where the village gets the name, is one of the longest High Streets in England.
Though, as you can see, the weather was grey and overcast, at least it didn't rain! Smile

This has to be one of your very best series, Trev, each and every one of them a delight to view, and all worthy of their own upload. Superb processing. Carol

Unmistakably Cotswolds - honey-coloured stone, chunky roofs.
Love V4, it's my sort of observation...

This set from Broadway brings back happy memories for us, Trev, as we spent a fortnight nearby in 1991, based in the village of Blockley only a few miles away and up the hill.
We would travel into Broadway every day, spend some time there before setting off for pastures further afield.
I love the colour of that Cotswold stone, the thatching, the colourful shop displays, and here and there the occasional half timbered building: and in summer the gardens and roses round the doorways are beautiful.
Your set has shown off the delights of this national treasure so well, a great advert for the village.
Ronnie.

What an enchanting series Trev, signalling a 'Must Visit' spot for all we Brits. I trust that you took all of these before you had a few pints in the pub.

Broadway is now a relatively quiet Cotswold village since a new bypass was built a few years back, but still remains a mecca for tourists doing the Stratford, Oxford and Broadway loop.
You have done justice to the mellow Cotswold stone

These are all great Trev, your usual fine standard and composition, but it's v4 that I like the most - it's the way I see the world, in little cut outs of a larger whole.

A wonderfully detailed set of images Trev. Makes me want to visit. The overcast weather perfect for diffusing the light enabling you to capture the grittiness of the stone buildings.

Good job Smile
