On July 27, Morgan, Claire and I pulled on our Wellies and headed south through Chipping Campden, out into the fields toward the neighboring town of Broad Campden.
Join us! :)
Here is a list of very Cotswold-y things to look for as we walk together. You can do a little visual scavenger hunt:
honey-colored Cotswold limestone
kissing gates and stiles
lavender + roses
And here you go. Look at this view. There's St James, back in town.
This is why we keep going to the Cotswolds. :) It's just lovely, 'tis.
Can you see the farmer and his border collie?
Here. Squint and you can see him.
Those border collies are the absolutely coolest thing to watch when they're herding sheep. They slink down low to the ground like wolves, and wow, it's just fantastic.
They're the smartest dogs in the world. I really want a border collie some day.
Follow Morgan through this kissing gate.
We'll spend a long time petting the horses before we move on.
Follow Claire over the stile.
These old stiles are slowly but surely being replaced by modern kissing gates, so this may be one of your last chances to clamber over.
We've made it through two miles of fields, and now we're entering the village of Broad Campden. Whoo hoo!
Here's St Michael and All Angels Church in Broad Campden.
What a lovely property.
And then back across this field to get back to Chipping Campden.
Thanks for taking this walk with us! :)
