Out and about in Moreton in Marsh

We are so lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful historic towns and villages in the Cotswolds.  None other than Moreton in Marsh the gateway to the Costwolds from Warwick on the Fosse Way. 

Had to get there early and capture some of the stone architecture as the sun rises as it glistens a vibrant honeycomb colour. 

One of the main features in the town is the Curfew Tower and Bell. This monument is scheduled under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979.  One of the oldest structures in the town and was part of every day life during the 16th century and onward.  Sitting adjacent to the medieval market place the tower was once used to lock up local drunks and minor criminals.

Other buildings include The White Hart Royal where it was said King Charles stopped before taking part in the last battle of the civil war at Stow on the Wolds.

Moreton is full of history and a joy to shop with it's wide open market place and the Redesdale Market Hall standing with dominance in the centre.
