Chedworth - 7 miles north-east of Cirencester - is a large, straggling village strung out along the valley of a tributary of the River Coln and just off the Fosse Way, the old Roman Road from Cirencester to Lincoln (now the A429). Indeed, there is plenty of evidence of Roman activity in the area; about a mile to the north of the village, and set in the beautiful Chedworth Woods, is the site of a Roman Villa. Discovered in 1864 [although the Bath House was discovered in 1760] it is now owned and run (since 1924) by the National Trust; there is also the site of a Roman Temple a little way to the east of the Villa (although only just under a mile from the village by foot - both the Monarch`s Way & the Macmillan Way footpaths pass through the village - it is just over 4 miles by road). Chedworth was also sited along the 'Salt-Way' route from Droitwich to Lechlade. The parish church of St.Andrew is Norman but sections were re-built in the 15th/16th centuries in the Perpendicular style; the 'Old Post Office' dates from the 17th century and now serves as a holiday cottage and the Manor House near the church is 16th century in origin. The village had a brief flirtation with the railways, the station opened in 1892 and closed in 1861, and the former railway tunnel still runs under part of the village. There was an RAF wartime airfield to the north-west that was operational from 1942 and closed in 1946. Chedworth is a quiet, unspoilt village that has managed to mix the old with the new but still retain a tranquil atmosphere.
