15 photos that’ll make you pine for Painswick

You’ll find the village of Painswick snoozing in the Stroud Valley, Gloucestershire. It’s a warren of ribboning streets and Hobbit-friendly cottages, scattered with a few places to eat and drink.

And standing majestically at its heart is St Mary’s Church, surrounded with Yew trees; 99 of them to be exact, planted in 1792.

According to the legend, should the 100th Yew ever be planted in St Mary’s churchyard, the Devil would return from the underworld to destroy it.

Fair enough, I’m not a fan of even numbers either.
