Stow on the Wold is a town on a hill with many listed buildings, at the junction of several roads, including the Roman Fosse Way. It has a huge market square – they gained their charter in 1107.

We only stopped for an hour to wander around the town, as it was a foggy day, and found a wild boar, horse head, and milk churns.


The 500 year old Kings Arms (centre) was a coaching inn, where King Charles I lodged in 1645

This was the White Hart, a coaching inn in the 14th century, and parts of it go back to the 12th century.
