Local Information

Blockley is a beautiful village which is known for its silk mills which had at one point brought wealth to the village back in the 18th and 19th centuries. The largest of the Blockley silk mills is Westmacott Mill which features terraces open to the valley side of Blockley is what gives the village its charm and character. Most of all though, thanks to the Blockley Brook which is a powerful one, Blockley was one of the first villages to be able to produce its own electricity.

You can find the St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church which are of Norman origins in the village and it is most readily seen from the village’s bowling green. The bowling green itself is considered to be the only level ground in the entire village as most of the village is built upon the edge of the valley.

With narrow streets, Blockley gives off that antiquity presence that is reminiscent of the English countryside of the 17th century. All of the buildings in the village are composed of locally quarried oolithic Cotswold limestone which just helps to add to the aura of the days of old.

All around the village of Blockley one can find nature walks that lead into the nearby countryside surrounding the village. There are many great walks to choose from and with a local guidebook you will be able to find them all and make your way through the beautiful countryside that surrounds the majestic valley.

In the village itself, you will find all of the essentials for living at the various small shops, but should you need something that is not available in town, a short trip to either Stratford-on-Avon or even Moreton-in-Marsh, will yield what you are needing.

There are many things to see right in Blockley and includes places like the Great Western Arms, The Crown Hotel and Inn, Lower Brook House, Skylark Cottage, Michaelmas Cottage as well as the many small and quaint village stores and their Post Office. However, nearby you can also find places like Mill Dene Gardens, Sezicote House, Batsford Arboretum, Cotswold Falconery as well as the Hidcote Manor Gardens.
