When you visit Lechlade, park you car in the Riverside Park car park, (free) it is on grass, and plenty of space for a picnic, and children to kick a ball around. Then go for a nice walk along the banks of the River Thames.
Maybe too you would like to walk into the town of Lechlade, it is no distance from where you park the car. Go over Tadpole Bridge and you are there !
Way out in the country side this is a wonderful musem of William Morris' pocessions and works.
Be sure to call or check the web site because they are only open a limited number of days.

Kelmscott, Lechlade, GL7 3HG, United Kingdom
Good for: Business
The shop is nothing special, just your usual run of the mill conveniance store, a minature version of the larger supermarkets.
We were camping at RAF Fairford, had all the gear except the cutlery so off we went to the nearest village to find some. Luckily we did so were able to eat that night.
What to buy: There were various sets but I settled on a nice plastic set of knives, forks and spoons complete with a plastic tray to hold them all.
One of the spoons did bend in the saucepan but wasn't too much of a problem though.
What to pay: This particular set was about £2.50 and well worth it.
What to buy:
If you like Wm Morris patterns here is a place to look for ties, needlework kits, pillows, rugs ($$), china, and more.
They even have an online shop:
The Christmas Shop in Lechlade is a haven for those of you who really love Christmas decorations, it is not full of tinsel and glitter, but full of traditional and unusual items. The range of goods are unique and some are handcrafted in wood, porcelain, pewter and brass.
What to buy: specialised items for Christmas, and occasionally selected items at Eastertime
What to pay: inexpensive - expensive depending on the quality and item purchased
Fondest memory: Where ever we travel we are also on the look out for little felines willing to let us take their pictures. Isn't this one a charmer?
