Adlestrop, Gloucestershire, England
"Yes, I remember Adlestrop
The name, because one afternoon
Of heat the express-train drew up there
Unwontedly. It was late June.
The steam hissed. Someone cleared his throat.
No one left and no one came
On the bare platform. What I saw
Was Adlestrop -- only the name"
"And willows, willow-herb, and grass,
And meadowsweet, and haycocks dry,
No whit less still and lonely fair
Than the high cloudlets in the sky.
And for that minute a blackbird sang
Close by, and round him, mistier,
Farther and farther, all the birds
Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire."
Adlestrop is about 3 miles by road from Stow-on-the-Wold. There is parking available to visitors in the grounds of the village hall. There is no charge but donations are requested.
This is a lovely little church both inside and out with a delightful little churchyard.
