Photographer's Note

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in southwestern and west-central England, an area 25 miles (40 km) across and 90 miles (145 km) long. The area has been designated as the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Stanton is about 3½ miles south of Broadway, and north of Cheltenham. It is on the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment. It is within just a few minutes drive from Stanway, and five or ten minutes drive from Broadway.


Stanton nestles beneath the slopes of Shenbarrow Hill and is probably one of the prettiest villages in the whole of the Cotswolds. Little seems to have changed in 300 years. It has a long main street with houses built in typical Cotswolds style with steeply pitched gables, mullioned windows and glowing honey coloured limestone walls.
Stanton takes its name from 'stan' (stone) from which it is built - similarly the neighbouring village of Stanway.
