This time you have outdone yourself Cindy! Gorgeous photos of beautiful Wiltshire. Englands old villages never stop to amaze me and Castle Combs is like a historical fairytale. As usual you have made a great effort in mixing historical photos with beautiful sceneries and plain fun! You are a star Cindy!

some photos are so bright and cheerful and some of the churchs lead me to believe they were the insperation for gothic novels as they are so spooky looking. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and Pixic is supposed to herd sheep not hide from them.
