A short tourism video about Southam in Warwickshire.

Southam is a small town situated in the heart of rural Warwickshire.

Its history is believed to date back to the early Anglo Saxon and Roman times.

It was a stopping place on the route of the Welsh Drovers and later coaching routes to London.

Charles I is said to have minted coins here in 1642, and the Old Mint still stands, now a popular pub.

The town retains many interesting historical buildings and has been designated as a conservation area.

The water that flows from the Holy Well was said to have many healing properties.

Visiting it makes for a very pleasant walk in the outstanding beauty of the Stow valley.
