Visit Moreton-in-Marsh in 2022
Moreton-in-Marsh sits at the head of the lovely Evenlode Valley and has been a lively Cotswold market town since the 13th century.
The beautiful high street is The Fosse Way which runs through the town. This Roman road is known for being one of the straightest roads in England, and it doesn’t just run through the Cotswolds; it runs from Exeter in Devon in the south to Lincoln in the northeast. The Fosse Way was built during the first and second centuries, was a popular stopping point for travellers before the railway arrived in 1853, and was an important staging station in Moreton-in-Marsh. The name “Fosse” comes from the Latin word fossa, which means “ditch”. It is most likely a reference to the Roman-controlled England’s western boundary defence trench.
The high street is flanked with elegant 17th and 18th-century houses; art galleries, antique emporiums, and inviting tea rooms provide an elegant backdrop to everyday activities.
