Our town is rich with historical interest. Wotton gained borough status in 1252.  It was built on the prosperity of the wool trade, enjoying close links for many centuries with the Berkeley family of nearby Berkeley Castle. Its street layout remains largely mediaeval, with scores of architecturally important Listed Buildings, ranging from the lofty magnificence of St Mary’s Church to the quaint charms of ancient almshouses (and we have no fewer than three sets).
