Stanton Village

Welcome to the website for Stanton in Gloucestershire. Stanton is a beautiful and unspoilt Cotswold village on the the edge of the Worcestershire - Gloucestershire border, near Broadway in England.

Situated on the side of the Cotswolds escarpment, 3 miles (5 km) south of Broadway and in easy travelling distance from Winchcombe, Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold and Stratford-on-Avon, Stanton is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful and unspoilt villages in the Cotswolds Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Nearly all of its houses and buildings are made of locally quarried natural stone and it has a history going back over a thousand years.



The village is located on the Cotswold Way, a formal National Trail since 2007, and it is a beautiful location for a casual stroll as well as an ideal waypoint for more serious walkers.

The area around Stanton can trace its roots back possibly as far as the time of Shenberrow (or "Shenbarrow") Hillfort or camp, located approximately 1.5km to the south-east of the village. This Scheduled Ancient Monument dates to the Iron Age (and possibly earlier to the Bronze Age), and its remains are still visible today. It is found next to Shenberrow Farm on the Cotswold Way.

Stanton village itself can boast a centuries old history  - most of the houses you see today were built around 400 years ago, whilst its church dates to the 12th century and before.

 Gloucestershire or Worcestershire?

Stanton is a Parish in the English county of Gloucestershire.

However, Stanton's postal town is Broadway, which is in the county of Worcestershire, occasionally leading to confusion.

 Cotswolds Wool Trade

From the early Middle Ages the Cotswolds had become well established throughout Europe as the centre of the wool trade, with present day Stanton being built on the wealth that this generated.
The Cotswold Lion sheep (pictured here), around which the Cotswold wool trade flourished, has become inextricably linked with the region, although it is now categorised as a rare breed.
