Cotswold stone is a yellow oolitic limestone quarried in many places the Cotswold Hills in the south midlands of England. When weathered the colour of buildings made or faced with this stone is often described as 'honey' or 'golden'.
The rock outcrops at places on the 'Cotswold Edge' and small quarries are common. The exposures are rarely sufficiently compact to be good for rock-climbing however, an exception being Castle Rock, on Cleeve Hill , above Bishop's Cleeve, near Cheltenham
