Fairford - A small, thriving Cotswold Market Town

Fairford sits on the south east edge of the Cotswolds. It has a population of just over 4000 and although small benefits from a wide range of facilities including a Pre-School, Primary School, Secondary School, Doctor's Surgery, a hospital outpatient clinic, two Dentists, an Opticians, a Library, Sports Hall, a Community Centre, and the Palmer Hall. There are also some good shops and a Post Office.

St. Mary's Church with its complete and recently restored set of medieval stained glass windows draws many discerning tourists. The beautiful River Coln is lovely to walk along and provides the opportunity to see kingfishers, swans, little grebe and brown trout plus shy water voles.

The town has a great community spirit as witnessed by the abundance of clubs for all ages from sports clubs to the University of the Third Age to environmental societies and art clubs. There are many community events like the annual Town Council Festive Market and Fairford Festival.
