This idyllic little place was thoughtfully named Black and White Cottage! I like the enormous chimney at this end which could have been the wash house or a bread oven maybe.
From little to large, this was one of many similar timber frame buildings and the only one that was not hiding itself behind tall trees. There are quite a few old listed buildings here and barns that now provide accommodation for humans.
This unusual plaque was under the window of another house. The village seems to be of two parts with the one centred around the church having been a farming community and the other half being nearer the canal. The busy little road runs straight through connecting one to the other. There is a useful Post Office Store selling the essentials and two pubs all within easy walking distance of the canal.
