Thanks for your comments on the photos of Stinchcombe Hill.
This series this evening, are views taken on the Cotswold Way in the direction of North Nibley as well as the church and John Smyth’s birth place.
“North Nibley is a village in Gloucestershire, England about 3 km northwest of Wotton-under-Edge.
The village is commonly known as Nibley: the official name North Nibley distinguishes it from the village of Nibley, just outside Yate, about 10 miles away in South Gloucestershire.
North Nibley is the probable birth place of William Tyndale, who was responsible for translating the New Testament into English, and for which he was later sentenced to death by burning at the stake in Vilvoorde, Flanders.
In his memory the Tyndale Monument stands on Nibley Knoll just above the village, at grid reference ST742957 on the Cotswold Way and is a fine viewpoint. From the top of the monument the panoramic views of both the Severn Bridges and beyond to the Black Mountains in Wales can be fully appreciated.
Nibley House, next to the church, was the home of John Smyth (1567-1641), steward of the Berkeley Estates and historian of the early settlement of Virginia.” (Wikipedia)
