A few more images of Great Budworth...................................................

St Mary and All Saints Church Great Budworth... 
...viewed from the public footpath south of the village.

The Bell tower of St Marys and All Saints.

 The village.pub.. The George and Dragon is very popular...
I really recommend their Sunday lunch.

 The village has some wonderful buildings.
It has has been the backdrop of quite a few films and TV series.

These buildings are wonderful to see.

This old farm house sits right in the centre of the village.
  Built in 1725 it would have originally been surrounded by fields...

...and the village then grew up around it.

 Great Budworth is a lovely place to visit...... and it's surrounded by a myriad of public footpaths.

I hope to walk them all this year.

Neat little village. I imagine having a brick making business is very profitable in England or at one time it was. There is a lot of bricks there.

Shadow among ancient buildings seem somehow ancient too!

When you see the shadows dance,
Be it Mexico or France,
You may join the shadow fun,
Dancing till the day is done!

What a perfect gem of a town. Had I a magic carpet, I would get to that pub for Sunday lunch! Failing that, thanks for the photographic tour.

I'm sure I'd try the Sunday lunch but in the meantime, can I have a ploughman's please? I've been craving one for years!

Fantastic looking buildings! I really like that style. It's far different from what we see here.

Some lovely traditional architecture there, Andrew. So much more sooting on the eye than some of the hideous modern stuff that is going up around here!

I meant to say soothing!

I really enjoyed the walk through Great Budworth, lovely old buildings, lots of history, beautiful churches and a great pub to boot..it's a bit like having a personal tour guide, thanks Andrew.

There is something inviting and at the same time solid about brick and stone. Great series, I'd love to take a ramble through there too.

Denise said...
