Stratton Meadows lies on the outskirts of Cirencester, a beautiful and historic market town in the Cotswolds. Stratton Meadows is just off the Roman road ‘Ermin Street’ to the west of the town and has been one of Giffords Circus favourite grounds for over a decade. Nell Gifford planted an oak tree with owner Sarah Holland in the meadows in 2018 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of the circus here in the UK.
