Snowshill ~ Cotswolds

Sat. July 5-Chipping Campden 029The road from Chipping Campden to Snowshill took us along little lanes bordered by rock walls and hedges. We were able to find a nice parking lot between the village and the National Trust property.

Sat. July 5-Chipping Campden 035A Fete was going on in the village center and some locals recommended that we go there before going to Snowshill Manor and Gardens which is a National Trust Property. Because we took that advice we missed the last opening for viewing the Manor House but we were still able to walk about the gardens.

Sat. July 5-Chipping Campden 039The church was in the very center of the village and on a high point of the village.
