We had a great day out and about in the villages of the Cotswolds. An Antique Center (Brit for Antique Mall) which was heavenly!!! Neither husband Jim nor I could believe the prices!!! Lots of great furniture and most very reasonably priced! Sigh!!! It just doesn't fit on an airplane!!
We then rode a steam train through the Cotswolds -- The Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway, saw Hailes Abbey and ended up in the delightful village of Winchcomb.
What you think of when you think of an English village -- a row of store fronts -- some of which are Antique Stores!
And the buildings are of all ages -- even some black and whites!
And on a narrow street!
And the stores --
A flower shop
A Butcher Shop
And, the most important of all --
A tea room
Where, after tromping around the Abbey, having a late full English breakfast and no lunch, we decided to indulge in
An English Cream Tea
A plate of scones ready for Afternoon Tea!
And we did find something at the Antique Center that we had to bring home . . .
A crockery Royal Doulton bed warmer! Much needed on those cold, rainy winter nights in Britain -- or on the prairie of Kansas -- and the price $20!!!
It's Wednesday and I'm sharing this day's adventure with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!
