Bluebells at Foxholes near Bruern

About

An Abbey is recorded at Bruern as early as 1147. The monastery was small and disreputable even compared to others in the Cotswolds, with a racy history of succession plots, deposed abbots, riots and even on one occasion the medieval equivalent of having the bailiffs in.


The nearby Foxholes Nature Reserve is a beautiful woodland haven famed for its spectacular spring bluebells and abundant bird life.
