Cotswold Way - North Nibley

North Nibley is a small village on the Cotswold Way with a shop, pub with rooms and a couple of B&B’s.  The village is famously associated with William Tyndale, who translated The New Testament  into English, for which he was later sentenced to death by burning at the stake. In his memory the Tyndale Monument stands on Nibley Knoll just above the village and is a fine viewpoint. From the monument, the panoramic views of both the Severn Bridges and beyond to the Black Mountains in Wales can be fully appreciated.  The last battle between private armies fought on English soil was at Nibley Green on 20th March, 1469/70 between William, Lord Berkeley, and Thomas, Lord Lisle with a combined force of more than 1,000 men.
