Barnsley

Barnsley Village is set in the heart of the Cotswolds, three miles from the historic town of Cirencester, on the old Roman route from Cirencester to Oxford. Barnsley's ancient history dates back to an Iron Age settlement in Barnsley Park. In A.D. 360, a Roman villa was built at the settlement, but by 577, after the capture of Cirencester, a Saxon village called Bearmodeslea (Bearmod's glade) was established at the site.

The Domesday Book recorded the village's population at 24. After becoming known as Barndesley in 1197, the village became royal property under the reign of Henry VIII three hundred years later. Henry was known to let each of his wives solely enjoy the village by turns. During the time of the village's status as royal property, many of its inhabitants earned their living through agriculture and sheep, helping make the Cotswolds the centre of the wool trade.

The Bouchier family became the owners of the village in 1548 and held it for the next two hundred years. One of the village's most famous features is Barnsley House, built in 1667 by Brereton Bourchier. The renowned residence has since been converted into The Barnsley House Hotel, with its famous gardens still a major tourist attraction. The Barnsley Village Garden Festival was inaugurated in 1998 and celebrated its 20th anniversary on 17 May 2008.

Cirencester

The attractive market town of Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswold District. It is the home of the Royal Agricultural College, the oldest agricultural college in the English-speaking world, founded in 1840. Cirencester was known to be an important early Roman area, when it was called Corinium, and the town's Corinium Museum is well known for its extensive Roman collection.

Cirencester contains a wide range of shops, leisure facilities and tourist attractions, including the Church of St. John the Baptist, renowned for its Perpendicular porch, fan vaults and merchants' tombs, and Cirencester House, the seat of Earl Bathurst and the site of one of the finest landscape gardens in England, laid out by the first Earl Bathurst after 1714.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe.
