With the sky looking like this on Sunday, I knew if we went for a walk, we wouldn't want to stray far from the car.
The village - like Wentworth - is an estate village with many of the houses still owned by the Estate owner who lives in the big house - and the big house is very big, beautiful but also sadly "out of bounds". This is his gatehouse.
A tantalising look up towards the house.
I think the hall is Elizabethan - its very beautiful. I would love a look around.
I think its amazing that it is still lived in. Rapunzel could let down her hair from this window.
The houses and cottages are all very pretty - its more like a Cotswold village
The surrounding area's and fields would have looked very different up until the 1980's as the area around here was heavily mined for coal, but none of the coal heaps are left - they have all been flattened.
There isn't much in the village, but the pub - The Hostel - seems to double as a village hall too.
