Nice photos, Karen. Thanks for posting them.

I live near the Cotswold Hills, one of the most beautiful parts of England. Rather than my posting pics here, just Google "Cotswold Hills" & you'll see what I mean.

Not my home town, but all close by (within about 30 miles range - although even London in only about 30 to 35 miles away).

The following is from inside a cathedral in the next town (about 4 - 5 miles away).



The following is from Hertford, some 30 miles to the east of here.



And the following couple are from a Wrest Park, about 15 miles north of here (it actually is now part of an agricultural research establishment, but the grounds of the old stately home remain open to the public).

And some of my local town - Banbury, Oxfordshire









This is the famous statue of The Fine Lady. You may have heard the rhyme...

Ride a cock horse,
To Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady,
On a white horse.

Sim - if you use img tags instead of url the pics will appear here rather than just the links.

About 5 miles from the village where I live is Edge Hill - the site of the 1st real battle in the English Civil War (there was a minor skirmish at Powick Bridge, Worcester, a month earlier). There are also other civil war battle sites in this area.
