This drain cover set into the pavement bears the name Hopcraft and Son of Deddington Oxon to a British Standard. Would it have been cast there I wonder? I don’t know what the monogram in the middle stands for either, any guesses? It was a delightful experience exploring all the lanes and alleyways hereabouts.
These snowdrops were escaping underneath the railings from the Churchyard. Birds and Squirrels were very bust seeking out food among the gravestones. Churchyards are great places for photographing wildlife, if it’s not too shadowy.
This is a row of four Almshouses tastefully built in the honey coloured Oxfordshire stone, which really seems to glow in the sunshine. I like the matching pointed windows and doors. The ironwork railings have a wildlife theme with little owls on the fence posts and roundels, with Acorns on Oak branches, set into them. We only post small pictures on our blog, but you can always zoom in to a picture to see the detail.
