Designing a bespoke kitchen in and around Stow-on-the-Wold is always a privilege for the Guild Anderson design team. Stow-on-the-Wold is a market town and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England, on top of an 800-foot hill at the junction of seven major roads through the Cotswolds, including the Fosse Way, which is of Roman origin. The town was founded by Norman lords to absorb trade from the roads converging there.
The large Market Square testifies to the towns former importance. Most of the buildings around the market square dated from the 18th to 19th century including St Edward’s Hall (the present-day library). At one end stands the ancient cross, and at the other the town stocks, shaded between an old elm tree. Around the square are an elegant array of Cotswold town houses and shops.
Stow is an important shopping centre and is known for its many fine Antique shops, Art galleries, Gifts and Crafts and is a centre for Walking the Cotswolds countryside.
