Cotswold Way - Uley
The village of Uley is situated on the Cotswold escarpment, on the road between Stroud and Dursley. The population is around 1,100, but was much greater during the early years of the industrial revolution, when the village was renowned for producing blue cloth. The placename (recorded as Euuelege in the Domesday Book) probably signifies 'clearing in a yew wood'. The village once had a large number of pubs (around 14) and until the 1970s there was also a butcher's shop and a petrol station, but now only one pub and a small village shop remains.
A quick line to thank you, Steve and Greg for such an efficient service in transferring our bags during the first 4 days of walking the Cotswold Way last week.
