"Welcome to the heart of the Cotswolds" Moreton in the Marsh by yumyum

Moreton in the Marsh Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 54 photos

The first settlement in what is today Moreton (= moor land settlement) was in Roman times. The actual town itself goes back to the Saxon era and is more than 1000 years old.

Moreton-in-Marsh is know all through the Midlands as a market town. In 1637 a charter was granted by King Charles I and ever since then there is a popular market that draws the crowds every Tuesday.

I visited the town on a weekend.

    I was amazed very much when saw straw thatched roofed houses first time in Germany! In my opinion they look wonderful!

    Your excellent photos of scenes of Moreton in the Marsh brought back very pleasant memories of my trip through Glocestershire! A lovely area of England with so many visual treats to enjoy.
