Blockley Tourist Information Guide

Blockley bears some resemblance to the villages of the Stroud valley but the stone much more golden in colour. During the eighteenth century when the wool industry was in declinecotswold cottages in Blockley Blockley turned to silk production. By 1884 six silk mills powered by the fast-flowing Blockley brook provided work for about 600 people preparing silk for ribbon-making factories in Coventry.

This small centre of industry began to decline after 1860 when the levy on imported silk was imposed.

The village of Blockley is a unique collection of buildings reflecting its past glory of mills and silk production and is quite different in character to other north Cotswolds villages.

Blockley is now a very peaceful charming village with its mill stream winding its way through the bottom of the valley. With many very enjoyable walks leading from the village and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Blockley has much to offer the holidaymaker. Its attractive village green overlooks the popular Bowling Green and beautiful Norman Church and is a pleasant place to enjoy a picnic on sunny days.
