Four Shire Stone and Fish Inn: Woodstock: Old and New on Broadway Hill

Four Shire Stone and Fish Inn: Woodstock: Old and New on Broadway Hill

At Four Shire Stone (bottom left) the boundaries of Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Warwickshire touch; but there is no inscription on the stone to record this fact The Fish Inn (bottom right) which dates from the early 18th century, stands on the summit of Broadway Hill. The photograph of Woodstock (top left) shows the cross roads at that once important Oxfordshire town, which is now little more than an appendage to Blenheim Park. Old Woodstock's principal feature, the Manor House, is remembered only by a pair of sycamores The signpost of 1660 shown (top right) with its modern companion at the top of Broadway Hill is not old, but its four slim iron arms recall the day when signposts were put up by the landowner as an act of grace.
