I LOVE walking past this little stall at the side of the road, it's been there for years and I can remember it as a little girl. It usually has plants, vegetables, sometimes a little bunch or two of Sweet Williams. It warms my heart to see it whenever I pass by.
There are a lot of peculiar little signs dotted around the village, on the outskirts, in woodland, all over the shop! They always make me appreciate that some parts of our countryside really have changed much in hundreds of years.
I love this telephone box! Not just because you don't see them all that often any more, but also because my village has big plans for it! You may have heard of the good old British telephone box being used by some villages recently to house miniature libraries or little shops, well that's far too ordinary for us! My village plans to use our telephone box to house a Community Use Defibrillator should anyone have a heart attack and need emergency assistance. Because we're quite rural it can take the emergency services a little while to get to us, when someone has a heart attack this initial stage is key, so hopefully having this here will save lives!
And lastly, here is our local neighbourhood dragon! Carved into a hillside by a local landowner - well it's something to do isn't it? There are many local legends about villagers fighting off a dragon, so we love this little hillside chap. Excuse the sheep on his tummy! A sheep's gotta eat!
Hope you enjoyed this little look around the place that I live! I'd love to see some bits and bobs around your local area!
