The Cotswolds are a range of hills in the South-West of England. The form of morris that most people will be aware of is cotswold morris. This is characterised by men* dressed generally in white, though often with coloured ribbons, sashes, and sometimes with coloured breeches instead of white trousers. Waving of handkerchiefs is a common characteristic, although many dances use sticks instead. The dances are generally for six, sometimes eight men, and involve precise stepping and set figures. Similar dances are performed originating from a number of towns and villages, although each generally have characteristic stepping or special figures unique to that village. *There are of course many women's and mixed teams too, although some people believe morris should be for men-only.
