What you've been doing

As Kim was born here, lived 19 years of her lfe here and we were married here, it is difficult for us to say less than anything nice about Bisley,

Bisley is a small village in the Cotswolds, about 12 miles south-west of Cheltenham. It boasts beautiful Cotswold stone cottages, scenic walks, two traditional pubs, a pretty church and friendly Gloucestershire people.

One thing you must see in Bisley are The Wells. They served as the village's water supply until the 1940s, but today are most famous for the ceremony which takes place there on Ascension Day in early May. The local school children dress The Wells with garlands of flowers - a great photo opportunity if you are passing.

Other sites to see are the village church (All Saints) and the Lock-up near the Bear Inn pub. There are two pubs in Bisley, the Bear Inn and the Stirrup Cup. Both date back to 18th century and serve excellent beers and great food.
