Canals & Cotswolds July 2014 - Broadway

Our next stop was the beautiful village of Broadway in the heart of the Cotswolds.  We'd stayed here before in the past a few times so knew the area. 

On arrival we pitched up, had some lunch and had a wander around the village.  It was really busy, being a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon.  Later that evening we met up with some friends in the village for a meal and a few drinks.  A great evening, thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Monday morning we got up to blue skies so decided to walk up to Broadway Tower, something we'd not attempted on previous visits.  It was pretty hard going on the way up but you were rewarded with the most stunning views at the top.  On a clear day you are supposed to be able to see parts of 16 counties in all.   The black clouds were looming once we'd reached the top so we walked back down into the village, collected some supplies and spent the rest of the afternoon on site watching the rain.  It only lasted for 2 hours and it was the only proper rain we saw all trip!!!  After two lovely nights in Broadway we headed to Moreton-in-Marsh for one night.  We got there at lunchtime, pitched up quickly and walked into town to meet up with some more friends for lunch.  Other than a wander around the weekly market we didn't do much else there and I didn't take any photos apart from a couple on my phone!
