Moreton-in-Marsh is a town and civil Parish in north-eastern Gloucestershire, England. The town is at the crossroads of the Fosse Way Roman road
The oldest building is the sixteenth-century Curfew tower on the High Street. Its bell was rung nightly until 1860 to remind people of the risk of fire at night. The Curfew Tower at the junction of High Street and Oxford Street dates from the 17th century, in daily use until 1860. It is said that it once guided home a Sir Robert Fry, lost in the fog, who gave money for its maintenance, in gratitude.
Moreton-in-Marsh was granted its market charter in 1227 and the well known Market is still held every Tuesday throughout the year. Many of the old buildings along the High Street date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Every Tuesday Moreton-in-Marsh hosts the largest open-air street market in the Cotswolds. This gives you the tourist the chance to spend and give gifts to those back home on your experience to the Cotswold. With over 300 stores plus to choose from there is something for everybody.
