Postcards from Minster Lovell

Last Saturday Steve and I took the bus to Witney so we could hike to the charming town of Minster Lovell. It had been 13 years since we first visited it on a rather rushed Cotswolds Tour, so it was very nice to see the town and River Windrush again at our leisure.


However, things got off to a damp start when we got caught in a downpour. Poor Steve!


St. Kenelm's Church looked very stately, even in the rain.

And while we were dining at The Old Swan (highly recommended), the sun came out!


If this house ever comes up for sale, I will buy it (somehow) and move to Minster Lovell.


And here are the ruins of Minster Lovell Hall. (Did you know that I love a ruin? Of course you did!)


We were going to visit the Dovecote, but I was distracted by this lovely donkey.

Can you believe we're in our final week? Closing dinner tonight, and then exams. I'll try to squeeze in one more post before we go.

  1. Hope your last week is as memorable as the rest - even the rain came across as 'contemplative' instead of sog-inducing!
