Birmingham – day 6

I'm leaving England  and going to Dublin this evening, but before I go I'll spend the day at Warwick Castle.

Yesterday Alison took me to the Cotswolds. Funny name, beautiful place.

"Cotswolds" derives from two words: "cot," which refers to stone sheep enclosures (derived from the Anglo-Saxon word "cote") and "wold," which means "bare hill" (also Anglo-Saxon in origin). The plural "wolds" denotes a series of rolling uplands. The area was made famous and wealthy over the centuries for its wool trade. One look at the many fine buildings in the various Cotswolds towns and villages presents ample evidence of that wealth.

Some buildings dated back to the 14th century and even older, it is so beautiful. Thes photos were taken in the village of Chipping Campden.



It was stunningly beautiful.

I will add more information on quilt tomorrow when I have time to work on the computer.
