Broadway Tower

Friday 11th March

After breakfast we walked back into Broadway and followed the rather muddy footpaths to Broadway Tower, a 65 foot tall folly on the second highest point of the Cotswolds. Built in 1799 the tower later became a favourite place for the founders of the Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones.

We had tea and a snack at the tower tea room but didn't spend long up here because it was cold and rather foggy. The walk back down the hill was a lot less muddy.
In the evening we walked back into the village for dinner at Russell's restaurant which we had found in the Good Food Guide. Lyn aid for the very nice meal as a birthday treat for me!
