Cirencester from the airThe Cotswolds is a large, beautiful and rural constituency, 65 miles long by 45 miles at the widest point.

Towns include Cirencester, the largest town, as well as Andoversford, Bourton-on-the-Water, Chipping Campden, Fairford, Lechdale, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Tetbury and Wotton-under-Edge.

Lower SlaughterWithin this big constituency is the largest of Britain’s 41 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a distinction which reflects the imagery most commonly associated with the Cotswolds: lovely countryside characterised by rolling hills and unique towns and villages. The area is enormously popular with tourists, who enjoy the market towns constructed of beautiful Cotswold stone. Tourism overtook agriculture as the largest single employer several years ago.
