One of the best-loved and most beautiful areas of England. Its major buildings include great medieval churches, built on the fortunes of the wool trade, and grand country houses such as Badminton and Dyrham, besides some remarkable relics of the early Industrial Revolution and much fine work by architects of the Arts and Crafts movement. The architecture of such celebrated towns as Cirencester and Chipping Campden is covered in depth, as are the wealth of villages, manor houses and farmsteads.
