There are two main original parts to the village: "Church Lane" near the church and "New Town" at the crossing of the B4077 and B4632 roads. The village has developed over the years and covers a wider range of facilities, housing and farms and businesses. The village, has a large church, St. Andrew's which contains the marble tombs of local nobility, the Tracy family, who variously lived at Sudeley Castle, Hailes Abbey and Toddington Manor.
The area is mainly farming country looking out to glorious hills. Much of the area around Church Lane is designated a listed Historic Garden Area and the area to the north of the B4077 sits in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Beauty. The land to the south of the B4077 is designated a Special Landscape Area.

Tewkesbury Leisure Centre prepares to reopen
Preparations are underway to reopen Tewkesbury Leisure Centre on Monday 3 August.
The leisure centre closed its doors on 20 March as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the teams from Places Leisure and Tewkesbury Borough Council have been busy taking advice from Public Health England, following Government guidelines, and consulting with the trade body ukactive to implement lots of new measures to help keep colleagues and customers safe, ready for when the centre reopens.
When visiting again from Monday 3 August, customers will notice more signage encouraging them to keep a safe distance from others. Some activities will restart, but at a reduced capacity, so it is essential to plan ahead and book online, by using the Places Locker app or by visiting placesleisure.org/centres/tewkesbury-leisure-centre
The Places Leisure team will implement enhanced cleaning regimes and customers will be advised to use the cleaning stations and hand santiser before beginning any activities or using any equipment. A handy new film has been produced to help customers prepare for the changes.
Matt Cotton, manager of Tewkesbury Leisure Centre said: “It’s exciting to be inviting customers back into the centre from 3 August. We are eager to help everyone back into their fitness routines in a safe and considered way. I would urge customers to visit our website before they arrive – it will list the new opening times, activities available and details of how customers can book onto each activity. We cannot wait to welcome our colleagues and customers back.”
