HISTORIC | TETBURY
Tetbury came to life with the growth of the Cotswold wool trade, and celebrates over 1300 years of recorded history. The thriving town boasts a wealth of architectural heritage, including its iconic market house, built in 1655 in the heart of the town.
Meander down the medieval cobbled Chipping Steps where, for centuries, the ‘Mop Fairs’ kept the locals gainfully employed.
Enter Tetbury’s Heritage Centre in the original Court House, featuring the story of the Gloucestershire Police Constabulary, which was founded in 1839 despite a petition from the locals!
Wherever you are, you’ll see the skyline is dominated by the magnificent spire of the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin.
With one of the tallest spires in the UK, this Georgian Gothic masterpiece - together with Tetbury’s many other listed buildings - make the town a designated
outstanding conservation area.
