More information:

The main street of Boradway, England. "One of the best loved of all Cotswold villages, Broadway's popularity is long lived. It developed as a staging post on the route between Oxford and Worcester, where coaches and horses could rest at the Lygon Arms before the long pull up Fish Hill. Both King Charles I and Oliver Cromwell are reputed to have patronized the Lygon Arms. It was William Morris, in the 19th century, who set the romantic tone to the town, imploring other writers and artists like Henry James and Rosetti to visit with him. John Singer Sargent painted his famous work Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose in the garden of Farnham House. Gordon Russell, the fine furniture maker, established his workshops in Broadway. His father owned the Lygon Arms." -source "Romantic Road Tourist Publication.
