We parked in Broadway and walked through the village and up to Broadway Tower. The High Street is broad and long.

Why does this deli have a car in the window, and how did it get there?


A mile out of Broadway is a hamlet with a church.

St Eadburgha’s is the original Broadway church and the village was here, but now this church is a mile from Broadway. Inns and shops opened on the stagecoach route from Worcester to London, which became the High Street in the new village.

There is a gate, but also steps up and over the wall and down the other side.


An unusual lodge house

After walking up through the trees we start to see the view

Broadway Tower – which you can’t see from Broadway, or on the way up. Each side looks the same.


We did not see 13 counties today, but perhaps you can from the top of the tower

On the way back downhill – Broadway middle right

Back in Broadway village – the Cotswold stone is very yellow
