Kirtlington Village.

Carolyn and I walked Hamish about a mile up the winding lane to see what the village had to offer. En-route we caught glimpses of Kirtlington Stone Quarry through the trees. There was a fabulous mix of large country houses, small quaint cottages, two pubs and a small PO Stores with a Cafe adjoining it. Most of the cottages were nicely interspersed around lovely grassy areas.

The Church was open, so we peeped inside and it seemed very plain and simple. There was a faded wall painting which I thought was of St George slaying the Dragon.The graveyard was rather like a wildlife sanctuary with grassy areas left uncut where wildflowers were thriving. We thought on the whole it was a beautifully laid out village with buses running through from Oxford to Bicester.

Unfortunately Mill Farm Tea Rooms down by the canal were only opening at weekends, so we missed out on their homemade goodies there, never mind eh.
