Monthly Meeting - A Cotswolds Cornucopia with Sean Callery

“The Cotswolds is one of Britain’s most scenic areas where rolling green hills are speckled with honeystone villages. There’s a story behind every scenic site, for this area was once the heart of the English economy and its landscape is now regarded as one of the treasures of Britain.
Take a whirlwind tour of ten famous Cotswolds villages and towns. We start from Chipping Campden, in the north of the Cotswolds, and wend our way round,enjoy their scenery and stories - plus at each stop-off, discover a quirky fact that I guarantee will surprise you..

The presentation reveals how Japan connects with a famous landmark, why a man stares into space for eternity, and how a landlocked town chose dolphins for its emblem. There are also amazing connections with sports, writers and the Houses of Parliament.”
