Moreton-in-Marsh


Moreton-in-Marsh at the crossroads of the Roman Fosse Way Road on the A429 is a small Cotswold town at the head of the Evenlode Valley. This picturesque town  has many buildings made from Cotswold stone. There are a number of independent shops and local attractions include the Batsford Arboretum in nearby Batsford village.


The town gets its name from the old English meaning "Farmstead in Marsh". The town is a busy and popular market town with a history dating back 1000 years to the Saxon period. There is a large open air market in the town every Tuesday and the town holds a very successful agricultural show every September.
