Well, that was a nice little getaway from all the way over here to there! Thanks for sharing these lovely photographs!xodulcy
A pleasure to have you join us. It was a lovely day.
The English countryside on a summers day :) It makes me glad to be living here. Lovely pics!xx
Thanks Jess. I love the gentleness of the Midlands sometimes.
Thanks Penny, it was rather. Sunshine, a hillfort to play on and a lovely little village to fantasise about living in.
Ah Charlotte, what a lovely story in photographic images. Really. Whenever I see those 'green lanes' as we called them in Devon - or walk them - I always wish with an aching heart that they were the closest we ever got to a motorway. There are pockets of this England left and let's enjoy them and work hard to protect them ,too. :)
I know exactly what you mean. This settlement goes back to the iron age. The fort has a wonderful ring ditch and is reached through a classic green lane, drover's track. The village itself was once part of the Daynecort family estate, it is named after the local oxen ford crossing. If I could live anywhere in Notts this is one of my fantasy villages. I truly believe the way to preserve it is to make people love and cherish it. My boys, my classes every year, each generation needs to understand the fragility and value of what we have.
hello, it is so wonderful to see your strand of photographs. i love the one large tree by itself, i find it so hard to photograph a lone tree without something man made in the photo. it looks like such a wonderful place to share with loved ones.
