COTSWOLD police have issued a fixed penalty notice to two men who travelled over 50 miles from Birmingham to Stow.
The men were stopped by police in Donnington and were unable to give a reasonable excuse for travelling.
They were both given a £200 fixed penalty notice.
Donnington is a small village located a mile or so north of Stow and is famous for its brewary located at Donnington Mill.
In 1646 the village was the site of a famous battle in the English Civil War, when Lord Astley and 3000 Royalists were defeated by Parliamentarian forces.
