A Magical Doorway, Stow-on-the-Wold

I’ve just spent a magical weekend in the beautiful Cotswolds. It’s the first time that I have had the chance to properly explore the area, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. With its rolling landscape dotted with ancient oaks, rambling hedgerows and pretty cottages, it is hard not to fall for this peaceful part of rural England, a place which seems to have changed little over the centuries.

My first encounter with magic was in the churchyard of Stow-on-the Wold’s historic St Edward’s church. This doorway, flanked by ancient trees which almost seem to have grown in to the fabric of the building, caught my eye.

There will be much more to come from my adventures in the Cotswolds over the coming weeks. But with so many magical tales to tell, my only problem is which one to choose next…

  5. Those old stone walls must be really solid, I’ve seen tree roots move walls before. Great photo.

    • And these are pretty serious roots! You are right, it is amazing that they haven’t damaged the foundations – it’s almost like walls and trees have merged into one another.

  6. Wonderful! I have seen photos of this elsewhere and I have always wanted to see it for myself!
