St Edward's Church is a medieval-built Church of England parish church, serving Stow-on-the-Wold ('Stow'), Gloucestershire.


A tourist attraction, it is among 98 Grade I listed buildings in Cotswold (district), a mainly rural district having about one third of the total of Grade I listed buildings in Gloucestershire. The surrounding district, due to many factors such as the Cotswold Hills and distance from major cities, has a concentration of conservation areas featuring neatly cut blocks and masonry of Cotswold stone which is borne out by the building materials of the church's square-towered, multi-arch structure. Its large stained glass windows, buttresses and neatly kept churchyard are among the reasons for its listing in the highest architectural category.

  • There are rumors that this church may have been an inspiration for Tolkien when writing the Lord of the Rings books series and many of the locals will agree with the lore. I'm not sure about that but regardless, it is a very beautiful old church and the door is quite distinctive.
  • The best little village had an ice cream there on the green looking at the stock on the green. Small but worth a visit the see the church
