Pictures of Tetbury
a Historic Market Town in the county of Gloucestershire
Tetbury has a lovely old church which is thought to have been rebuilt around 1780-1790, but both the tower and spire date from the 19th century. The interior of this splendid church has box pews, slender wooden pillars and a very fine gallery. It could certainly be said that this church is one of Englands' finest examples of the gothic revival style of architecture.
The country home of the Prince of Wales - Highgrove - is to the south west of the town but sadly, is not open to the public.
There is a wonderful ambience around Tetbury and the visitor can while away many an hour browsing in delightful shops or looking at historic places of interest such as the Elizabethan Market Hall to which one suspects the merchants of the day came to have their wool weighed befor selling it.
