Walking down to my village, Northmoor

July 9, 2014

It’s been a wonderful summer day round here. It was the perfect day for a lunch time visit with our friends Chris and Diane.

After lunch, Robert and Chris wanted to talk cars and general boy stuff, so Diane and I decided to walk down to the village to look around, post a letter, and visit the church.

Northmoor is about a mile down the lane form West Cottage, past fields and farms and country estates.

We saw this big guy! Look at the size of his horns!

Further down the lane we found these little lambs who came trotting to us and they were so loud!

I fed them some dandelion leaves.

In the village, the cottages are so lovely. I love the old English feeling of our village.

Then up to and into the church.

And said hello to my Knights Templar Thomas Moore…

We walked around inside the church and read the grave stones and carvings.

Had one more look around and walked back up the lane to the cottage. 😀

    A lovely day, indeed. Your lunch looked spectacular. I love a meal you can eat with your fingers. Forks are overrated.

    On Sundays when I was living in Somerset, I often had the day free and to myself and i would walk from village to village along the bridal paths, lunch at a pub, wander a church, etc. These are some of my fondest memories of England, Such peace. Your village looks glorious, one day i will visit when you are there, I will be back in the UK sometime I hope..c
