It’s a wonderful town

proud to be Stroud

The Bluestocking Wool Shop is one of many terrific independent shops in the market town of Stroud (pop. 13,000), a place with real character, a strong sense of community and historic associations with wool, weaving and artisanship. The farmers’ market on Saturdays is one of the best in the UK and there are many indie cafes and bars, too – it’s a great place to visit (and an ever better place to live!).
