And a bit of a 'folly', a ramble and back to the Slaughters and more . . .
We really enjoyed our stay in Warwickshire, the Cotswalds, Bidford on Avon etc. Always something to do. Sadly we did not get to do as much as we had hoped for and we were a bit stunned for a day or two after the UK dcided to leave the EU. Our accommodation was excellent and nicely located to get around and see the things of interested we had chosen before we left.
On the way to our chosen walk location we couldn't resist having a look at a sandstone tower prominent on the top of a hill. This was Broadway Tower and is referred to as a 'folly'. A sort of indulgence that has remained for several centuries and apart from providing magnifiicient views of the Cotswold landscapes was frequented by William Morris a well known designer, particularly on fabrics, which are still sold everywhere today.
High on our list was a tradition English 'ramble'. Their are 'footpaths' all over the UK and rambling along them is a favourite British pastime. We chose a relatively short walk around a small village, Bourton on the Hill which was not too far from our accommodation. The walk we chose was through a working estate, Sezincote which also had an impressive manor house. Walking through the paddocks and generally having a 'sticky beak' was most enjoyable.
On a previous visit we had visited a small village called Lower Slaughter and as it was not far from the location of our walk we went back to see if it was still as peacefull and quaint as we thought on our first visit. It was.
Because of the lack of wifi at our accommodation, 'Trout Fry' blogging is slow, using public places and cafes so I will post this one and try to do another later today, Tuesday 5th here. We are off to Paris on Thursday.
