Stow-on-the-Wold is an ancient Cotswold Wool Town of about 2000 people situated beside the Roman Fosse Way in north-east Gloucestershire, and in the heart of the Cotswold Hills. Set on a rounded hill at a height of about 800' above sea level, this elevated position and the effects of the elements have encouraged the creation of the enclosed town square. Where the ancient Jurassic Way (Cotswold Ridgeway) and the Salt Way met, an Iron Age fort was built (c. 700 BC) that extended from the cottages in Camp Gardens to the eastern edge of the Square and northern edge of Street. There is evidence of earlier settlements in this part of the Cotswolds. Stone Age and Bronze Age burial mounds are common throughout the area. Originally a small settlement within the lands of Maugersbury Manor, which was controlled by Evesham Abbey from 708 AD until its dissolution in 1537 AD, Stow was intended by the Abbots to be a centre for trade, leaving Maugersbury to its agriculture. Consequently Stow expanded and became a parish in its own right, with the boundary between them being moved several times to accommodate Stow as it grew.

The houses of Stow are built with the mellow Cotswold stone from local quarries. Some have massive internal oak beams from the days when Gloucestershire was covered mainly in forest. A local artist, Trevor Ashcroft, who lived in the house next to St Edwards Hall (now a shop), created the etching seen here which shows the west side of the Square between Church Street and Stow Lodge Hotel, with the church in the background. Note the house that is on the slant, next to the last on the right. The Council office is above St Edward’s Café in the fourth building from the left. This St Edward’s House was built in the mid 18th century and modelled on Bedfont House built in 1740s for the Cottrell family in Chipping Campden, by Thomas Woodward. The fluted Corinthian pilasters and cornice are features common to both buildings. The Kings Arms is a good example of a coaching inn where the main entrance was through the arch leading to the stables. Charles I stayed here at the time of the Battle of Naseby in 1645. It featured as The Kings Arms in the recent TV production of Thomas Hardy’s Mayor of Casterbridge. At the end of Digbeth Street stands the Royalist Hotel, said to be the oldest inn in England. An inn has stood on the site since 947 AD.

Stow was, until recent times, supplied with water from springs below the town. Due to the local geology, water held in the upper layers of limestone gushes out of various fissures on the hillsides. Some of these springs have never dried up, and the two in Well Lane were made into wells. The recently-refurbished top well in Well Lane is a Grade II Listed Building. For centuries women and children had carried water with yoke and bucket from the well on Well Lane. Water carts plied between the well and the town where the water was sold to the townsfolk at a price of a farthing a bucket. To increase the supply, water was brought up from Lower Swell, and several systems were tried to force water up the hill including windmills and a horsemill, but none lasted. In 1871, Joseph Chamberlayne, lord of the manor, donated £2000 to the town for a deep well to be bored. This was built by the local ironmonger Henry Teague, who also ran an iron foundry, and it supplied the town until mains water came to Stow. Although mains water was laid on in 1937, there are still residents who drink only the well water as it tastes better. The town's main source of wealth in former times was wool, and sheep from the surrounding hills and villages were brought to the fairs in the Square where it is said that as many as twenty thousand were sold on a good day. The narrow alleyways called 'tures' leading from the Square to the perimeter of the town were constructed for the better control of animals. The Market Cross was erected as a symbolic reminder to the traders of medieval times to deal honestly and fairly. Although restored and repaired several times, a cross has stood here since the 15th century. After the local gasworks opened, there was a gas lantern at the top. The top of the cross was last restored in May 1994 after an alcohol-happy young man climbed up and fell bringing it down with him. The four sides of the lantern head represent "A Rood", "St Edward", "The Wool Trade", and "The Civil War".
