There were wild snowdrops every where

View from the bridge. The Inn at Winsford has had the thatch catch fire quite often but I believe they are not allowed to change it

Inviting looking pub, there.

As to the third photo, which way is the stream flowing: toward the photographer or away? Interesting geology there, or is it a man-made diversion?

Cheers.

What a fantastic looking thatched roof on the Inn. I have an ongoing converted chapel in a nice part of Scotland, where I am thinking of thatching the roof of some out buildings.

The pics have given me some new inspiration.

The first photo the water is flowing away- it is actally a ford and I'm standing on the road. Then I turned to the right and climbed the bridge so I think the water was flowing towards the camera. the pub is great but we just had a drink as MTL and grand- daughter stayed at home getting lunch etc

I always enjoy your photos, Pat.

Your photos make me ache for the English countryside and the lovely inns! I am so envious.

Jimmy B: they do look enchanting as long as there are no loose sparks flying around. It sounds delightful.

Judy: thank you. I'm having a terrible time today with Firefox and keep having to shut down.

Heather: sorry I missed you.

Streams, greenery, snowdrops and a warm, inviting pub - bring on winter.

Like most people living out my way, I've had more than enough of summer and drought.

PI said...

Sheri: you'll have to make a trip.

Miss D. and we are longing for the spring and will we get a summer this year?
