Selsley Hill

No Comments Stuff

While hurtling through Gloucestershire I spotted and visited an eye-catching building which, it turns out, is All Saints church in Selsley. The church building itself is unusual as it was modelled on a church in Austria, but once inside it is not just the gorgeous European design that strikes you, as the stained glass was designed by the William Morris company and it is wonderful. There are coachloads of folks on Arts & Crafts pilgrimages turning up in this tiny but very well connected village.

There is also Selsley Hill or Common. The view from the hill gets ever more gorgeous the higher you climb. I discovered this gem completely by accident – unlike the many couples walking here, and I am smitten. This place is gorgeous. Love it. At least in the sun.
