A Guide to Gloucestershire Place Names and their True Meaning.

This is another in the series from my considered in depth research into this esoteric subject.


Bibury: The walk of a tourist who does not understand what he/she should be doing, or seeing, or indeed why they are where they are at all. Involves walking slowly in one direction and then in another random direction, even the person doing the walking does not understand exactly why or in which direction they might be going. It’s a sorry sight. Pity them.

Common in the Cotswolds. Japanese tourists avoid by following a flag which is even more odd and could even be described as slightly sinister.

Bibury is a small village between Cirencester and Burford, it is populated by wealthy London people and many tourists as a result of its lovely location and buildings.
