Whiteway Colony

It’s a village on the Cotswolds originally founded over 100 years ago by followers of Tolstoy. The philosophy has changed over the years but it's still a “community” with meetings to make decisions. It's not a posh “gated community”, I know some quite ordinary people who live there. Still, instead of a “village hall” they've got the “Colony Hall” and the library is “The Book Room”.

The Colony Hall


Middle England has its garden gnomes and neatly clipped hedges but Whiteway is different

Like most village notice boards, this one gives a snapshot of local life

Excellent garden shed

A stony ploughed field. A lot of Cotswold fields are like this which must make for hard work. The lime will make  the soil alkaline and especially good for growing cabbages
