'Gentle Passage by Canal Boat', watercolour by John Davis©
There is a wealth of enjoyable scenery and fascinating places to visit once you plan to stay in the Stratford area. Stratford is a small town surrounded by glorious rural countryside, the colour of which changes from the deep greens of spring and winter to the golden harvest yellow of summer and autumn. There a many beautiful small villages each with their own charm and history. The roads and byways are quiet, the natives are friendly and the inns plentiful.
