While we were filling up with water at Newbold I walked down the road to discover that there was a Co-op. I got some milk because we will be miles away from any shops for a while. At Brinklow we met up with our friends Graham and Betty who were on their way south. Long chats over drinks were in order over the next few days. Friday we all walked into Brinklow for a snack at the cafe which was excellent value.

IMG_0361 Fosse CottageThere is quite a mixture of interesting architecture all along the main street, this one was called Fosse Cottage.

IMG_0362The old Fosse Way runs straight through the centre of the village.IMG_0360There is the Cafe/Delicatessen, General Store, a Fish and Chip shop, Chinese Takeaway and two pubs.  

IMG_0379 Holly CottageThese two little cottages are now one and named after the Holly Tree which still grows in the garden.

IMG_0380Here is an interesting row of cottages, the cosy little one in the middle is for sale. On Saturday Betty and I walked up for her newspaper while Graham did a bit of fishing and Bottle was on the laptop of course. Sunday we said our goodbyes as we headed for Hawkesbury Junction and they continued on down to Rugby. We have just enjoyed bacon with bubble and squeak, haven’t had that for ages!
