Swinbrook is a small village in the Cotswolds on the River Windrush, about 2 miles east of Burford, Oxfordshire. Apparently untouched for generations, it is the quintessential English village with its stone walls, pretty church, cricket pitch with wooden pavilion, and an old stone pub next to the old stone bridge across the River Windrush.
