The Quintessential English town.

While we were back in the UK – (which feels so long ago now). We based ourselves mainly at husbs parents house as it was pretty central and made it slightly easier to try to galavant (I love that word) around the country to catch up with people.

I have just been looking through all of our pictures of the holiday and trying to put them into some sort of order and came across a few that I took while we were at the in-laws and it reminded me how lovely and historic and quintessentially ‘English’ this lovely little town is.

So guess what!

Yep you guessed it, I thought I would share them as a bit of a trip down memory lane.

Hey no need to thank me – You. Are. Welcome πŸ™‚

You may have noticed that they are all a bit dark, this is for 2 reasons.
1. I take terrible terrible photographs.
2. The weather was that dreary pretty much the whole time we were there, and I don’t want to be messing about with filters and all that nonsense to make it look like it was glorious sunshine because;
A) I am all about telling it like it is, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and;
B) I don’t actually know how to filter them.

*B) is the real reason . . . . .

  1. That’s definitely very quintessentially English. I love anything with that Tudor type look, very pretty! (For your pics, open them in picmonkey.com and click “auto adjust”. Magic!)

  2. gosh I love little English towns. I’d love to go and live in one! Not sure what I’d do for work, but I’m sure I’d find something!?

    • Hey you are getting the lingo though but you should have added a Golly before the Gosh and then you blend in immediately!
      You could be a buxom Aussie barmaid in the local ale drinking establishment???
      Just a thought πŸ˜‰

  3. What a lovely little town indeed! What is that building in the fourth picture? It looks amazing!

    And don’t forget, It is the birth place of Charles Darwin!!

  5. It does look bleak – but some nice historical shots there, there is so much history in England, I do love that about the place πŸ™‚ xx

  6. I know I’ve not really sold the place very well have I? You are right though, there is history coming out of your ears there. πŸ˜€
