Broadway



We spent a day in Broadway last week.  It was a hot, sunny day and the village looked at its best.  A quintessentially English village of the Cotswolds, Broadway has one of the longest High Streets in England.





The village is nestled at the foot of Fish Hill where apparently monks used to store fish. The village is known for its association with the Arts and Crafts movement and is situated in an area of outstanding beauty and conservation.





Honey-coloured  limestone buildings dating back to the 16th century and earlier are what gives this village its distinctive character.





Lots of lovely shops too: gift shops, tea shops, restaurants, a fantastic even if pricey deli, and lots of art galleries. It's a nice place to wander and window shop.





This is the centre of the village with a green in the middle




We walked towards Station Road, a walk we had not done before






This building was built in 1450




nice cottage garden




everything is immaculately kept









I don't know what this building is






a closer look at the gorgeous gatehouse




Lots of lavender around at this time of year







which looks so good against the honey-coloured stone.
