The city of Gloucester may well be the place for you if you are looking to relocate to a city steeped in history. It may be the Roman and Feudal history, or the Cathedral and the religious orders that operated in and around it, or the regiment of the Mighty Gloucesters that served the army so well and the famed Docks that gave the city a great deal of trade and prosperity, and where the Tall ships are still coming to dock today.

First and foremost, throughout its history, Gloucester is best known for three things. The first and earliest part is the influence of the Romans on the region. Before the Romans arrived, there was a village here because of its position next to the River Severn. They wanted a port to serve the much larger town of Corinium, modern day Cirencester, the town of Glevum became a location where the Roman Centurion and the Legionnaire’s would go to live when they had retired.

The hillsides of the Cotswolds around Gloucester are littered with villas and the one to the south of Gloucester at the top of Brockworth Village is very spacious and the foundations are largely intact. The Empire’s former soldiers were determined persons, and the town became larger and more affluent than the inland Cirencester.

 

Gloucester’s second historical attribute is the impressive Cathedral. Constructed in the early mediaeval era, it demonstrates the impact left by the Roman soldiers as the city had the wealth and power to create one, particularly so far from London.
