Taken on the same day as my previous uploads when the light was getting lower before disappearing.

"Minchinhampton is located on a hill top 4 miles south-south-east of Stroud, Gloucestershire, England, in the Cotswolds. The town is an ancient market town dating back to pre-1400. The main square has an early Market House.

Nearby is Minchinhampton Common, a recreation area for walkers and golfers. The Common is also used as grazing land for the cows of local farmers in the summer. On the Common are long parallel ditches and mounds which formed part of a large Iron Age fort. There are good views from the Common west over the Severn estuary into Wales, and east to the Golden Valley and further into the Cotswolds.

The main street in Minchinhampton has a few small shops and cafes, a Post Office and the Crown Inn.

The spire of the parish church of the Holy Trinity was pulled down for safety reasons in 1863 and now the stub has been completed with a "coronet" structure.

A market is held under the Market House.
The parish church, Minchinhampton, with its unusual "coronet" tower

Minchinhampton is close to Gatcombe Estate, the home of the Princess Royal, which hosts the Gatcombe Horse Trials in late summer each year and the twice-yearly craft fair at Gatcombe.

Minchinhampton was both the birthplace and country residence of Joanna Trollope." (Wikipedia)

The foreground is so scenic as is the township dotted with the turning trees. Love the little spire that seems to cap the hamlet. Have a great weekend, Jean.
