The "Air Balloon" Roundabout and Pub
The "Air Balloon" Roundabout and Pub
At the top of the notorious steep hill up the scarp slope of the Cotswolds this roundabout joins together the major routeway from Gloucester to Swindon and the road to Oxford as well as a lesser road to Cheltenham. The pub is named after the landing site of Edward Jenner's hydrogen balloon flight from Berkeley Castle on 2nd September 1784. Jenner is more famous for the introduction of vaccination against smallpox. For more on Jenner and the superb museum near Berkeley see: LinkExternal link
