Bagendon: A Quaint Village in the Cotswolds (April 2023)

Bagendon is a picturesque hamlet in the Cotswolds (an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966) where the parish church, rectory and village hall are all Grade II listed buildings.

Along the banks of the Churn River, which runs through the village and crosses Bearidge Bridge, the hamlet enjoys picturesque views from every direction.

The village boasts an excellent school and is easily accessible via bus routes and provides an oasis from the hustle and bustle, making it an idyllic spot to spend some time.

Bagendon’s ‘oppida‘ is a large earthwork complex, remains an intriguing puzzle in the study of pre-Roman transformations.

As part of a larger research initiative into European ‘oppida, this project has been exploring one less well-known of these structures in Britain: Bagendon in Gloucestershire.

Heathrow Airport to Bagendon takes approximately 1 hour 23 minutes by car.

The Cotswolds is home to some of England’s most picturesque walking routes, with its rolling hills and stunning landscapes providing a breathtaking backdrop for a leisurely stroll.

Whether you’re looking for a short walk or a challenging hike, the Cotswolds has something to offer everyone.
