Hanwell Things to Do

  • Walk in the shady country lanes

    Hanwell is an oasis of peace and quiet. We didn't meet anyone as we went for a walk from the church to the main street to take photos of the lovely cottages we had passed on our way and then back to the car cutting across the village green with slings and slides for the children. It was a little cooler in the shade of the enormous trees and all we...

  • St Peter's, Hanwell

    The beautiful St Peter's Church at Hanwell dates back to the twelfth century and is a Grade 1 Listed building. There is a small car park in the shade of the enormous old trees in front of it, but the church was closed so we could only walk around it and see the graveyard with some old graves. The Church has five bells but, according to information...

Hanwell Local Customs

  • Stone to stone

    Drystone walls, that is walls constructed without the use of mortar, are typical of the Cotswolds and not only - I have seen them as far as Cornwall too. But, as I took the picture at Hanwell, let me put them under this village. They are the long-lasting evidence of great craftsmanship, which the present wall builders would probably be unable to...

  • Hopefully not a custom

    I hope that what we saw in the graveyard of St Peter's is not a custom but the English are practical people so you never know. There was a country path starting from the graveyard and its beginning was marked with an ancient tombstone, standing but turned sideways, which you had to step over to get onto the path. If you had a closer look, there...
