Description

The Swine Brook in the centre of Swinbrook

The picturesque little Cotswolds village of Swinbrook (or "pig brook") at one time would have been on the edge of the Wychwood Forest and no doubt swine grazing in the forest would have used the brook for water. The 'brook' is the little Swine Brook which flows down a narrow valley from the Seven Springs a couple of miles to the north, collecting water from a number of other springs on its way down to meet the Windrush at Swinbrook. In the centre of the village the Swine Brook passes through a little wooded area which in the spring is pretty with naturalised daffodils and tulips before moving on to join the Windrush.
