England - Cotswolds, Stanton

Stanton was one of the prettiest and picturesque villages of the Cotswolds during our visit. Walking around it looked as if time had stood still and little or nothing had changed in the past years and that all without tourists (and shops). It has a couple of streets lined with ancient houses (PiP1), built in authentic Cotswold style with honey coloured Jurassic limestone walls and pitched gables. The village has some 16th, 17th and 18th century houses and a restored medieval cross (PiP2). Stanton is derived from 'stan' (stone), from which it is built.
At the end of the village stands the Mount Inn on a mount. From the terrace one has wonderful panoramic views of the village and the surrounding Cotswold landscape. Just a pitty that we were too early, as the pub was still closed. Mount Inn is a village pub, dating back to the early 17th century, when it was a farm house.
