Local Information

The town of Moreton-in-Marsh, England is located within the confines of Gloucestershire County. The meaning of the town name, Moreton, is a derivative of a farmstead on the moor, while at the same time, the part of the name Marsh, does not refer to a bog, but rather to the word march which simply means boundary. The reason this translation is most widely recognised is for the fact that the old county boundaries which consisted of Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire as well as Worcestershire is only one mile east of the town.

The town is located on an old Roman Empire roadway junction along the Fosse Way, but since the Roman times, the roadways have been covered over by uptodate roads, which in this case, the junction is referring to A429 and A44. Although the town itself is situated on the Cotswold Hills, its terrain is low lying and flat. Furthermore, the area became famous during the Second World War as the home airfield for the Wellington Bombers which were built on the flat terrain just east of town. Today this airfield is now used by firefighters from all over the country as a training centre as well as being the home to the Institution of Fire Engineers.

Due to its location near the top of the Cotswold Hills, many of the buildings also use the native Cotswold Hills Limestone giving it that local charm that can only be found in the Cotswold District. The town is filled with antique shops as well as several places of lodging and even a museum devoted to the Wellington Bombers. Furthermore, the home of the original Cotswold Railways can be found in the town of Moreton-in-Marsh as well as a museum which is of course dedicated to the old railway line.
