Poulton is a vibrant village of around 160 houses, set in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a beautiful 19th Century Church, a traditional Village Hall and it is also home to the popular gastro pub, The Falcon, which serves some of the best food in the area.
Historically it was predominately an agricultural community, which over the past century has seen many changes, yet remains an active and sociable place to live. Regular events are held in the Village Hall, such as Toddlers’ Group, Pilates, yoga, art classes, and a film club called the ‘One and Nines’. The Women’s Institute meet regularly and there is a monthly “Books and Biccies” session, held on the first Saturday of each month, when villagers can swap books and meet and catch up with the news. The village is lucky to have retained a recreation ground and a playing field called ‘Englands’ where village cricket and football is played, and a traditional summer fete is held each year on the first Sunday after the August Bank Holiday.
Poulton is in the county of Gloucestershire, in the south of the Cotswolds and is part of the Hampton ward of the Cotswold District Council. The parish had a population of 408 at the 2011 census.
