Rather English - Eat Winstones Ice Cream

Whilst it may seem an odd time of year to suggest it, the forecast is sunny and people can be found enjoying an ice cream from Winstones Ice Cream Factory - on the slopes of Rodborough Common above Stroud in Gloucestershire - in all seasons. The Winstones have been making Cotswold ice cream since 1925, when Albert Winstone began trading in it from a motorbike and sidecar.


Today, still run by members of the same family, the ice cream remains a local favourite, with many walking up from Stroud to enjoy it. There is good news for ice-cream-lovers as well, as the Winstones have just received planning permission to build an ice cream parlour, sure to help the business live on for the next generation.
