Stonehouse, England


With a view to giving visitors from abroad a general idea of the nature of the Cotswold country, a delightful afternoon's motor excursion in the vicinity of Stonehouse was planned by Mr. Sibly. After passing through Nailsworth, a halt at the Roman camp at Uley Bury, with its magnificent hilltop setting, presented a delightful vista of the richly wooded hills and charming valleys of one of the best sections of the Cotswolds.

A longer excursion, with a visit to Gloucester Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey (where lunch was taken on the Abbey lawn), was to Stratford-on-Avon, returning by way of the Cotswold villages of Broadway, Stanton and Stanway and over Cleeve Hill (the highest point in the Cotswolds), and Birdlip Hill.
The final excursion was in the nature of a walk over the hills in the direction of Pitchcombe, where, through the kindness of Miss E. M. C. Little, of " Resthaven," delegates and friends were provided with afternoon tea.
