The historic market town of Stroud is perhaps most famous for its involvement in the Industrial Revolution. The town is noted for its steep street and situated below the western escarpment of the Cotswold Hills at the meeting point of the Five Valleys.

On the fringes of the town are Stratford Park, originally the park of a small local weaver, now home to a leisure centre with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, and the Museum in the Park, a museum of the history and culture of the Stroud valleys.

With a current population of around 13,000, the town of Stroud has developed a strong community of independent shops and cafés, which provide the mainstay of the retail experience in the town.
