Stratford 1: Shall I compare thee? No Posted on 4 October 20182 April 2021 by Rob Ainsley Beautiful October day doing more cycle route research, this time round Shakespeare’s Stratford and the Cotswolds.

Chipping Campden, just south of Dover’s Hill, offering majestic views of cafes, shops, and parked 4x4s that have never had a speck of mud on them. Broadway Tower.
