Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswolds, England

Stow-on-the-Wold is a pretty little town in the Cotswolds. Their web site is here and the wikipedia article is here.

Stow was a big market for sheep. There are narrow alleyways called "tures" leading from the Square to the perimeter of the town that were used to herd the sheep to market.

We ate lunch in the pub of the Stow Lodge Hotel which has a false bookcase in the lounge that once concealed a spiral staircase leading to a secret room. There are also tunnels from the basement allegedly leading to the nearby church.
