Northleach is a small Cotswold market town in Gloucestershire.
It is situated close to the A40 main road, and the Fosseway, the A429. The town was made wealthy by the wool trade of the fifteenth century, and the main church is of impressive size and quality in reflection of this fact.

The road which became the A40 originally ran through the town, and as the main road between Oxford and Cheltenham it contributed greatly to the town's development. The town was bypassed in the mid 1980s, only after substantial vibration damage had been detected in some of the fine 15th - 18th century houses on the main road.

The town has three pubs: The Sherbourne Arms, The Red Lion Inn, and The Wheatsheaf Inn. There is also a Sports and Social Club, a Mechanical Music museum (Keith Harding's World of Mechanical Music), and an art shop, Fothergill's Gallery.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul in Northleach is known as The Cathedral of the Cotswolds. The current Church dates from the early 12th century, and was built on top on an earlier building, also believed to have been a church. The 12th century version was fairly simple, consisting of the aisle and not much else. That the chancels were a later addition is immediately apparent from the south eastern quoins visible in the Bicknell Chapel.

Other changes have left their mark. The scar on the steeply pitched roof of the tower wall indicates that the south aisle was widened twice. The chancel was built in the 1300s, followed by the nave, aisles and sacristy in the 1400s. The overall style of the present church is known as the Late Medieval Glass Cage type in which the structure of the church is of less importance than the large, traceried stained glass windows.
