Burford is a small medieval town on the River Windrush in the Cotswold Hills and is often referred to as the ” gateway” to the Cotswolds. It’s famous High Street sweeps downhill to the river crossed by a three arched medieval bridge.
At the bottom of the town is the impressive church of St John the Baptist whose graveyard is encircled by the river which is populated by swans and other water birds.
Mid morning we met up with my sister and brother in law ( who don’t live too far away) and started with coffee in the courtyard of the Priory Cafe, it turned out to be their wedding anniversary so it was pleasant to spend some time with them. After a gentle stroll around town we went to a different cafe, Cafe Fifteen in the grounds of the church where we had lunch.
After we said our farewells we walked to a park at the top of the town, close to the campsite, where we allowed Layla a good run round.
It’s been a pleasant day, sunny but cold, a pleasant way to break the Covid lockdown.
