Stow-in-the-Wold is an attractive little village, and there are books about the town. Here, we will take a look at some.
The Parish Church of St Edward
Wiki brought out a 20-page book about the Parish Church of St Edward. The writer explains how Stow-on-the-Wold started as an Iron Age fort, with the hill as a good vantage point over approaching enemies. The crossroads eventually made it a good place for setting up a market, with farmers coming from all over to buy and sell sheep in the market square of Stow-on-the-Wold. Of course, the book is about the church, so the church’s history is explained.
