Castle Combe

This village on approach offers a cluster of ancient stone buildings which surround a roofed market cross.  Set in a valley this is probably one of the most photographed and filmed villages in the Cotswolds - one of Englands's most beautiful villages.

Again historically the wealth of the village comes from the sheep trade where Castle Combe had been granted a charter to holds a fair where wool and sheep changed hands.   One pair of brothers by the name of Blanket are said to have invented the article to which they have given their name.


There are the remains of a Norman castle built by one of the early lords of the manor, Walter De Dunstaville (1270) his tomb can be found in the church.   Often asked about the location of the Castle, it no longer exists, but its original site was about half a mile to the north west of the Manor House, overlooking the Bybrook valley.
