Wotton-under-Edge is a market town located at the southern end of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. The linear town stretches along its busy High Street and Long Street, with its market place at one end and its church at the other.
The Parish Church is possibly the town's most important architectural feature. It is framed by trees and possesses a fine late 14th century tower. The present building was consecrated in 1283. The town also boasts three groups of Almshouses. The earliest of these is one of the most notable examples in the town of traditional Cotswold stone building.
The Cotswold Way long-distance footpath passes through the town providing a wonderful amenity for ramblers and walkers.
