Local Information

A villager located in Gloucestershire, England which has also become known as the Venice of Cotswold is none other that Bourton-on-the-Water and has been aptly dubbed this for the bridges which span the river running through the middle of the village.

Boasting a number of popular tourist destinations like the River Windrush which runs through the center of the village and is crossed by a number of beautiful foot bridges. The river is such a popular spot that every year a foot ball game is played across it in which the goal posts are set on each side of the river. In this yearly football game, crowds will gather along the banks and take turns throwing their balls across the span of the river in an attempt to get them in the goal.

There is even a 1/10th scale model of the village in which in the model is the model itself in 1/10th scale. There is not a model within the model though. This model also incorporates the railway through the region as well. There is also the famed Cotswold Motoring Museum as an ornithological called Birdland.

The earliest records of Bourton-on-the-Water dates back to 709 A.D. when a church built of wood was placed within the village town limits. By 1110 A.D. though, growth began occurring in Bourton-on-the-Water when the first church made of stone was built and still visible today. The only visible portion left though is of the chancel.

By 1870, the church was replaced by the nave which currently stands in its place. This church also contains memorials for both World Wars as well as one of the finest examples of a king-post roof that can be found anywhere.

The beauty, elegance and charm of the River Windrush is what has given life to this beautiful town for many centuries. It is this same river which can be seen meandering through England’s most charming landscapes before finally merging with the River Thames and out to sea.

If you ever get a chance to make it out to Bourton-on-the-Water, then you should take advantage of the chance and take in the many sites there are to see along this antiquated Cotswold village.
