spot where the four counties of Oxfordshire,
Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and
Warwickshire used to come together. (The
county boundaries have since been changed
several times.)

An excellent view of High Street, probably late 20s.
Moreton, which is about 17 miles from Stratford, lies at the head of the Evenlode Valley,
between the Cotswolds and the Oxfordshire hills, and immediately south of the watershed
between the Severn and the Thames. It has always been my favourite Cotswold town - I used
to deliver "Corona" there in the late 1950s and have lots of happy memories. I've been a fairly
regular visitor ever since and enjoy its shops and pubs. I've recently discovered that my
great-grandfather Gregory and great-grandmother (nee Rouse) were both born in Aston
Magna in the early 1800s. I've only managed to find one card of Aston Magna so I'd be grateful
if anyone could provide some more - scans are fine, not the actual postcards which I know
must be quite valuable !
Every Tuesday the town holds the largest open-air street market in the Cotswolds, and is also the venue for a successful one-day
agricultural show held on the first Saturday in September.

The
Four Shires Stone, (see below for a couple of old postcards) about two miles out of the town, was erected to mark the meeting
place of four counties, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire. However, boundaries have long been
changed and no longer meet there.
