Ancient and historic Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest town in the Cotswolds, standing 800 feet above sea level. Stow has attracted people settling in the Cotswolds since the Iron Age. Early Cotswold settlers were drawn initially to the adjoining village of Maugersbury, but overtime the commercial success of Stow has seen the town establish itself as the pre-eminent town in the Cotswolds. Stow is located at the junction of six roads making it an important and natural meeting place. One of the renowned Cotswold routes meeting in Stow is the famous Roman road – The Fosse Way.
The centre of Stow has a remarkably large and impressive market square. Markets have regularly taken place in Stow since 1107 when King Henry II granted a charter. Stow has always catered for visitors and travellers. At one time it was said that just about every building on the square was either an Inn or sold refreshment
