Mickleton, Gloucestershire, England

"Mickleton is noted for its market gardening and vegetable growing Young plants, seed plugs, apples, cauliflowers and asparagus, or gras, are grown locally. Meon Hill, scene of the so-called 'witchcraft' murder of Charles Walton in 1945, lies to the north of the village. Meon Hill is said to have provided inspiration for Tolkien's 'Weathertop' from The Lord of the Rings According to legend, Meon Hill was formed by the Devil. He intended to throw a clod of earth at Evesham Abbey, but missed, and the earth formed the hill.


Mickleton has two old pubs, King's Arms and Butcher's Arms, and a hotel, Three Ways House Hotel. Sited on a green in front of the hotel is a memorial fountain by the Victorian architect William Burges.


At the heart of village activities is King George's Hall, located at the centre of the village and home to the many clubs and societies that thrive in the village.


The Heart of England Way runs through the village. The village has many B&Bs that have been set up privately in people's own homes Local market towns and villages include Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stratford-upon-Avon, Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham.


Both Hidcote Manor Garden and Kiftsgate Court Gardens are located nearby." - info from Wikipedia.


Summer 2019 I did a solo cycling tour across Europe through 12 countries over the course of 3 months. I began my adventure in Edinburgh, Scotland and finished in Florence, Italy cycling 8,816 km. During my trip I took 47,000 photos.
