Northleach, a Cotswold Wool Town Jul 23, 2014
Northleach, a small Cotswold town not far from Cirencester, is what is known as a 'wool town'. That is to say that it prospered due to the wool trade in the 15th century.

Typically, this is reflected in the parish church, which is of impressive size and quality in retrospect to the size of the town.

Unfortunately the town itself has suffered from the invention of the motor car, and is little more than a picturesque car park. Some of the buildings are quite pretty though and there are still traditional shops and pubs on the high street.

The church, tucked back behind the main square is quite lovely with its aged tombstones and beautiful architecture.

When we visited a wedding was about to take place so the interior was wreathed in country-themed flowers.
