Chedworth is a village in the Cotswolds, seven miles north of Cirencester. It is most famous for its Roman Villa, cared for by the National Trust. Many of the buildings were built hundreds of years ago, and the local pub, the Seven Tons is a pleasant (if busy) place to retire after walking through the surrounding countryside.
The railway line that once cut through the village was closed in the 1960s. This leaves the visitor with either
- The bus service (once a week to the village! or several times a day to a stop on the main road (the Fosse way - aka A429), two miles away).
- Walking, if you're staying nearby then walking here is possible. However don't expect to find somewhere to stay the night.
- By Car. This is probably the only sensible way to get here, parking could be a problem though. To get here you'll generally want to get onto the A429 (the Fosse way). The turn off for the village is in a dip and is just a small country lane.
The village is about a mile long, so there's no need to drive once inside the village. The centre of the village is smaller than that anyway, with the Church and Pub within 2 minutes walk of each other.
- The Roman Villa -- a half hour walk from the village centre, down into the valley (see map)
- Go for walks to the Roman Villa!
There are no shops
