A break at The Gatehouse - Stanway, Gloucestershire
Here on the route of the Cotswold Way stands this imposing building, the Gatehouse to Stanway House. Allegedly to the design of Inigo Jones, the building was raised in 1630 by Timothy Strong of Barrington, a member of a prominent family of stonemasons, for Sir Richard Tracy. It was listed Grade I by English Heritage on 4th June 1970. The occasion of this photo was an eight day guided walk on the Way led by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens including myself, starting on 15th July 1989 in Bath and coming to an end in Chipping Campden on the 22nd July. The walkers came from various places including Chippenham, Cheltenham and Kent with overnight accommodation booked along the way. Time photo taken not available. Source: Historic England.
