  • The American Fountain in Statford-upon-Avon

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I like to take the time to see the details when Im out sightseeing. Id rather see one thing or sight really well, and get really intmate and familiar with it, than rush around and see 10 different things but not really get to see them well.

    My friend pointed out this fountain, which turned out was a gift from an American citizen to the Town of Stratford. It was a very pretty fountain. Although it stands right in the middle of a square, it didnt seem that many people took time to look closely at it, I took a moment to enjoy it, and Im glad I did!

    That is actually me in that incredibly dorky touristy hat. I cant believe I wore that!

    Stretton-on-Fosse is a tiny village outside of Moreton-in-Marsh. It has a beautiful church and old graveyard, and a nice pub (no sky though). There are lots and lots of adorable thatched roof cottages covered in flowers. It is truly a slice or 'real' rural England.

    I think this is technically in Gloucestershire. It's a neo-lithic burial site, with actual graves still inside. It's sort of this massive hump with 3 entrances, but the front one is sort of a pseudo entrance. The two side entrances are the actual entrances. Though you can go inside. There are small rooms there, where during certain celestial events, altars are maintained. It's all Very mysterious!

    Be prepared for a good hike through a sheep field to get there, but along the way, the views of the countryside are wonderful. Do beware though, if you'll be leaving England, you will be asked by customs if you've been around any livestock or their droppings. Be prepared to clean your shoes meticulously, or Im not quite sure what the consequences might be.. (go home shoeless?)

    It's quite challenging to get there - see the website for specific directions.

    Croughton Court

    by andywing Written Nov 18, 2003

    John de Throckmorton built the house in 1409 when he was to marry into the de Spiney family.

    The Throckmorton family still live there.

    Check their web-site before you visit as they close for the winter and have restricted opening at other times.

    Here's a picture of the beautiful graveyard. I know it's weird, but I like looking at stuff like this while away.
