Biddestone

Let’s, for once, have bit of quintessential England today. Just recently circumstances made us (my wife and I) do a bit of a tour of North West Wiltshire and that takes you into the Cotswolds. We took a picnic lunch at Biddestone, a pretty little Cotswold village.

There’s a pretty duck pond which is visited by interlopers from the coast.

And of course, the pleasing hues of Cotswold stone can be seen on cottages.

Larger homes have the same gentle colouring too.

Many of the houses carry dates. Some have builder’s initials too.

There’s a green with a cross on it (and quite a lot of cars too).

We are led to believe that this is what people from overseas think English villages are like. Certainly, Biddestone is a lovely little village.
