Cotswolds, Gargoyles

Another week past, no time to do anything! We had a walking weekend in the Cotswolds, staying in the YH in Stow-on-the-Wold, one of many beautiful Cotswold stone (oolitic limestone for the geeks) I suspect it's horribly crowded later in the year, the central square is a carpark rather than a market or giant open air cafe, much prettier! The weather was perfect, and paths easier to do a total of 45Km over 2 days.

It's also a treasure trove of gargoyles, some splendid chimeras, and unusual figures apparently supporting a lectern, not something I've seen before.
