    Quote:Yes. I remember Adlestrop—
    The name, because one afternoon
    Of heat the express-train drew up there
    Unwontedly. It was late June.

    The steam hissed. Someone cleared his throat.
    No one left and no one came
    On the bare platform. What I saw
    Was Adlestrop—only the name

    And willows, willow-herb, and grass,
    And meadowsweet, and haycocks dry,
    No whit less still and lonely fair
    Than the high cloudlets in the sky.

    And for that minute a blackbird sang
    Close by, and round him, mistier,
    Farther and farther, all the birds
    Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.

    (Edward Thomas, 1916)

    I'm guessing that it has changed very little since.




    Moira, I didn't know about this poem but it conjures up a wonderful image of a time gone by. You are right, the village seems hardly changed at all. You can still hear the birdsong and apart from a couple of cyclists and a local sat by the post office with her dog, all was peaceful.

    Although trains still go through the village there are few signs of the station that was axed in the 60s. We spotted the station sign which is still there inside the town bus shelter. I've uploaded a little picture of this as a version just for interest but it's not my photo.

    Quote:Great photo Sandra, do you mind me asking where this is in Condicote, it's not far from Cheltenham? Rich



    Many thanks, Rich. I drove through Stow and I think we took the B4077 Tewksbury road towards Ford. There's a gorgeous poppy field on there not far from Swell and if you take the little lane alongside it you'll come across this wildflower field.
