Cadbury Castle is an iron age hill fort that is considered by many a likely site for Camelot. We didn't take the time to climb the hill but we did enjoy the walk through the orchard. Here we were not only following in the footsteps of the Arthurian legends but author Jack Whyte's wonderful Camulod series about England in the 5th century after the legions left. We drove through Glastonbury and saw the Tor in the distance but took a wrong turn at a roundabout and decided to keep on going to Bath.
Stow-on-theWold. This is one of my favorite English towns and the third time I've been here. It has a wonderful big market square surrounded by houses made of that lovely, lovely golden Cotswold stone. Here the final battle of the English Civil War was fought.
