Sunday August 16th: Chippen Campden, Moreton on the Marsh & Burton on the Water

We spent our last day visiting these three beautiful towns located in the Cotswolds. Each one with unique houses and town centres. At each location the group were free to explore and photograph within the towns.

We finished in Burton on the Water this afternoon. There were quite a few people visiting the town as it is know for it’s shops and beautiful parks.  

We have now reached the end of our South of England tour and tomorrow morning will make our way back to London, Gatwick for our mid day flight home to Canada. We hope you have enjoyed the blog during our tour and thank you for following along. Trekkers departs for Kenya and Tanzania, Africa in September so make sure to check back and follow along as we embark on another amazing photo adventure.

Enjoy the selection of our last days images while visiting the South of England.

Due to a server failure on August 19th, 2015 we have had to restore the last 5 days of our England Blog. This was done as of August 20th, 2015 so you can see all the great places we experienced while on our tour, but unfortunately all the blog comments were lost. We apologize to all the folk that took time to leave comments while we were on tour as we appreciate hearing from home as we travel. Thanks James

I just had a chance to catch up on the blog. Looks like you all had a great time and this sees you coming home with many great photos.

Thanks for including the photo of the "Woodward House". Unfortunately not the one in my heritage, but similar area. That house was in Cirencester and was a row house with front door opening on to the pavement (sidewalk for Canadians!). Looked very similar to one of the later photos in the blog.

Enjoyed following along. Some of the earlier photos were very familiar as areas I lived in or visited as a child. Seems a little strange that these are tourist destinations.
