England - Ramsbury

In an earlier posting, I promised to show more images of the delightful village of Ramsbury, near Swindon in Wiltshire.  So here's a further taste of life in this glorious region of the UK .  .  .


 Above is a wonderful example of a thatched roof which has come to be symbolic of England.  (Pity about the modern street lamp though!)


And here is a close-up of the actual thatching - quite an art !

These two cottages and their front gardens just caught my attention
and begged to be photographed as a reminder of a delightful afternoon's stroll through the village.

(Ditto !)

Lovely English scenery. How lucky for you to have taken a stroll through that village.

Love those thatched cottages - they have a unique & special character. Interesting to see the thatch close up and I could imagine many hours of detailed work would have gone into the construction of these quaint roofs.
