Stow-on-the-Wold is a small market town and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England. 

It is situated on top of an 800 ft hill, at the convergence of a number of major roads through the Cotswolds, including the Fosse Way. The town was founded as a planned market place by Norman lords to take advantage of trade on the converging roads.

Fairs have been held by royal charter since 1330 and an annual horse fair is still held on the edge of the town. The vast Market Square testifies to the towns former importance. At one end stands the ancient cross, and at the other the town stocks, shaded between an old elm tree. Around the square the visitor is faced with an elegant array of Cotswold town houses. Stow is an important shopping centre and has many fine Antique shops, Art galleries, Gifts and Crafts and is a centre for Walking the Cotswolds countryside.
