Cotswold stone is a yellow oolitic limestone quarried in many places the Cotswold Hills in the south midlands of England. When weathered the colour of buildings made or faced with this stone is often described as 'honey' or 'golden'.
Additional recommended knowledge
The stonework of the Northern Cotswold villages such as Stanton and Broadway, is significantly darker than that found in the Southern Cotswolds (eg Dursley) (see ).
The rock outcrops at places on the 'Cotswold Edge' and small quarries are common. The exposures are rarely sufficiently compact to be good for rock-climbing. However, an exception is Castle Rock, on Cleeve Hill, above Bishop's Cleeve, near Cheltenham.
