Stow is a small market town set on top of a hill about 21 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. When
I was a lot younger I used to help deliver "
Corona" round the town and got to know it quite well.
The local saying "the wind blows cold at Stow-on-the-Wold" was certainly true in the winter !
But it's a nice place to visit and have your photo taken sitting in the stocks !
