Well, had a wonderful few days in Warwickshire, though on Monday the day of travel, and also on the first full day (Tuesday) the weather was rather grey and gloomy...from then on it was lots of sunshine for the rest of the week! Our lovely hotel, the Charlecote Pheasant, was located in the village of Charlecote, some 4½ miles east of Stratford-upon-Avon and 6 miles south of Warwick.
After getting settled in, I had a wander across the road into the village's St Leonard's Church. Rebuilt 1851-3, the church stands on the site of an earlier 12th century church on the edge of Charlecote Park. It was instigated and paid for by Mrs Mary Elizabeth Lucy, whose family resided at the Park.
The actress Judi Dench married actor Michael Williams in 1971 (who she also starred with in the TV sitcom 'A Fine Romance'), and they later lived in the village for 12 years. When Michael died in 2001, he was buried here in St Leonard's Church graveyard, and his grave is shown here in V2. The church interior can be seen in V3.
A bit of catching up to do on here, and lots of images to process too!
