Bourton on the Water
Bourton-on-the-Water, just south of Stow-on-the-Wold, has a population today of 2,700. This is vastly swollen in the tourist season by thousands coming to see what an article in The Times in the summer of 1996 described as ‘arguably the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds’. In Beddome’s time there were more sheep than people and the houses huddled either side of the River Windrush formed what really was an out of the way place. Here Beddome ministered for nearly 55 years.
