A great read and photo's. Although they have sold it now my Dads three sisters combined their resources, twenty years ago, and bought a holiday property in Hook Norton. It's a great base for touring the area, the Sun Inn in the village is also worth a look with local ale on tap.
Great trip Gram!
I am at Broadway next week. If my washing is stolen i will blame one of you lot.
Break a leg
One of the Broadway skyscrapers still looks OK in daylight, with the neon lights off.
If you do pop up there, check your brakes before the descent.
The escape road is quite overgrown now - perhaps nobody's used it for a while..?
Also, I believe that you can pop into the old ROC bunker at weekends and Bank Holidays these days.
Lovely area we like to get down there 5 or 6 times a year.
I hope that's a Waitrose cart.
We couldnt find the tower, but otherwise it was a lovely place.
On top of the big hill to the southeast - next time....
Best views to the West on a clear morning, with the rising Sun behind you.
Fenn's, Whixall & Bettisfield Mosses

It's far out
Well, I found this picture of an Officers' Mess snow tunnel in '47, but the snowfall in '63 was perhaps a bit greater - we couldn't open the upstairs windows at the front of the house, much less use the front door....
The 'traditional' football in the river seems to have got a bit more corporate these days.
I had a multi-destination trip today, which gave me the opportunity to spend a few hours in BotW in the afternoon.
The river was flowing nicely.
It's nice that the bridges are still without safety handrails.
The trees were looking good in the winter Sun.
The benches just in view in the distance are just off the Village Green, across the river from the Motor Museum.
Having suffered people taking pictures, through the window, of me having my tea...
... it was payback time, so I took a picture of people having their dinner in my bedroom.
The Weird Hedges are still doing their bit.
These sheep did look somewhat familiar...
The river on its way out of the village.
What I'm sure is a nuclear-hardened hedgehog shelter.
