History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A lovely village on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment, Long Compton features some medieval thatched cottages, 13th century church, and a two story half-timbered lych gate.
It always seems to be sunny when I visit Long Compton. I'm not sure what conclusion to draw from that fact, but I'm getting used to coming around the bend in the road from Moreton in Marsh and seeing the valley lit up before me, with golden sunlight catching the tower of the parish church of St Peter and St Paul. The sight of the church with its half-timbered, thatched lych gate is one of classic, timeless beauty.
