Adlestrop Gardens Open Day
Every June, the gentle folk of Adlestrop open their wonderful gardens for the day. Ploughmans lunches and teas are available at the Village Hall and a fun dog show is held at Richard Phillips' racing yard.
Adlestrop is a quintessential Cotswold village - impossibly pretty without being overly manicured, set in the glorious Evenlode Valley.
As Edward Thomas said:
Yes. I remember Adlestrop—
The name, because one afternoon
Of heat the express-train drew up there
Unwontedly. It was late June.
The steam hissed. Someone cleared his throat.
No one left and no one came
On the bare platform. What I saw
Was Adlestrop—only the name
And willows, willow-herb, and grass,
And meadowsweet, and haycocks dry,
No whit less still and lonely fair
Than the high cloudlets in the sky.
And for that minute a blackbird sang
Close by, and round him, mistier,
Farther and farther, all the birds
Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
