Pittville Architecture guided walk


Pittville Parade Evesham Road 1826

Andrea Creedon, a member of Pittville History Works, has created a GPS-guided architectural walk around Pittville. Information about it is on the PHW website, at So you can look at it there, or go on the walk yourself, with the app downloaded to your mobile phone. If you adjust your phone settings, you can even hear an audio version when you approach any of the stopping points (not Andrea’s voice, but an American robot).

Desmond Marshall has put together a talk on the subject of some of the many able and eminent people came to live in Cheltenham as the town developed. Some came to retire and for others it was their place of work. The lives of many of these people are now largely forgotten. This contribution to Heritage Open Days looks at the hidden lives of some of the plantsmen and botanists who have lived in and around Pittvillle; and one botanical mystery. The talk can be be viewed as a pdf at
