Photographs of Cheltenham
Cheltenham lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds
and above the vale of the River Severn.
From humble beginnings as a modest market town, Cheltenham became
one of the most fashionable health resorts in the country. In 1716,
in a meadow outside the town, pigeons were found to be pecking at
what turned out to be salt crystals at a spring which led to the
establishment of the town as a Spa.
The Promenade is considered to be one of the most beautiful thoroughfares
in the country, with it's tree lined avenue flanked by smart shops
and café's. The composer Gustav Holst was born here in 1874
and the Antarctic explorer Edward Wilson in 1872.
Visitors from all round the world flock to Cheltenham for the International
Festival of Literature and Music, and the town is the western gateway
to the Cotswolds. The photographs illustrate the graceful regency
architecture and beautiful gardens for which the town is famous.
