The town of Painswick, England is situated in the County of Gloucestershire on top of a hill in the area known as the Stroud District. Painswick is also in the region of the Cotswold Hills which means that many of the homes in the town utilise the natural forming oolithic limestone which can be found under the Cotswold Hills. While the town itself grew up in the wool industry, it has become known more for its yew trees as well as the Rococo Gardens which can be found inside the town. Due to the town’s history in the wool industry, a majority of the older buildings also feature attic rooms. All of these attic rooms are southerly facing and were once the homes to seamstresses and weaver’s workshops.
The town of Painswick is truly a native English Countryside village featuring narrow roads and old-school charm that can only be found in the Cotswold Hills District. But even if you are not interested in its olde-world charm, you may still be interested in the town’s golf course which can be located just a short walk from the Painswick Beacon.
While the written information of the town can be traced back to the Roman times, the town itself, especially the area around Painswick Beacon is filled with artefacts and structures which can be dated back as far as the Iron Age. If you are looking for some truly old remains, then go to the hill near Painswick Beacon and there you can find some defensive earthworks which give the view of the surrounding Severn Vale. Furthermore, the town Abbey, Prinknash Abbey was originally established back in the 11th century A.D.
If you are interested in information and photos for research into the First English War, then Painswick would be a useful source. The area during the war was of strategic importance and therefore the forces that were loyal to the King were stationed in Painswick in order to protect it. As a result, there can be found on the Tower at St. Mary’s Church, two small cannonball indentations which makes a perfect photograph for any researcher.
There are several traditions which are performed in Painswick which date back as far as Anglo Saxon times which involves the St. Mary’s Church along with its yew trees. A festival every year is performed which has become known as the clipping festival in which the town children join hands and encircle the church as a means of embracing it.
