Still being written …..
Note: I would like to share with you through these few words, photographs and hyperlinked websites, a 3 Dimensional experience as though you were actually there with us. Click on any photograph and it should enlarge to different size (view image in cursor list)….. at least half screen or size full screen. It will be clearer in detail than the photo on the post. It will be as if you were really there looking at the actual scene. You are an arm chair traveller with us.
If you would also like to see the post in a larger or smaller size, I suggest you follow this procedure: If you right-handed, with your left hand, press down continuously on the Control Function Key with your left hand and with your right hand, move the little cursor wheel either forwards or backwards to make the text in the post larger or smaller.
Churches of Devon …
You would drive out into the countryside and there would be a large carefully built stone church sitting in the middle of this tiny village. Often these churches were built 500 – 900 years ago when the village supported a very large rural community. People would walk miles on a Sunday morning to come to church.
Nowadays these churches have only a handful of people supporting them and is costing much maintenance $ to support them.
A common sight in many English towns and villages, houses would built hundreds of years ago in this tiered levels style of downstairs, middle and upper storey ….. in brick faced with an open timber lattice filled in the white –painted plaster. The roof was in split sandstone or slate tiles or even thatch roof. It gave a unique handbuilt look to each house., very whimsical and personal.
Town of Barnstaple …. About 0.25 hrs from Croyde Bay we were staying
