The Yew Tree Cottage and Environs

Once a public house on the road to Cirencester and just up the hill from Brimscombe, the Yew Tree Cottage, proved a delightful base from which to explore the Five Valleys of Stroud, Stroud, and beyond. Woollen and textile mills dominated the local economy from the middle ages until the 19th  century and have left their mark. This page explores the Port of Brimscombe on the Severn and Thames canal, and the wool towns of Chalford and Nailsworth, and the market town of Stroud. Subsequent pages will explore further afield.
