Looks beautiful! I'm a huge fan of the "Miss Read" books - they're so cosy and comforting in their simplicity - and this looks like I picture the villages in her books.

Ooh no! Sorry Lady A but they're honey coloured Cotswold stone and nowhere are there hills as steep as that, even the hill up from Lulling!
Well, I've only a very hazy grasp of British geography. No clue where the Cotswolds are relative to anywhere else!

I guess it's all "down south" to you, Lady A 😁.

I grew up in Dorset. To us anything between Blandford and Shaftesbury was the Midlands. Anything beyond Shaftesbury was north!!

More like "over there" as I'm in Ireland! I remember learning the industrial/manufacturing towns of the UK as a child in school - Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield etc. - but just a vague idea that they were in the middle of the map, somewhere.

We were in Castleton a few years ago, lovely little town. When we had a lovely holiday in the Peak District. Fabulous walks all around the area.

Eyam the plague village was a lovely place, seeing all the plaques on the houses, a reminder of the great sacrifice the villagers made
