The Northamptonshire village of Stoke Bruerne.
Normally everyone goes there to see the locks, the canal boats and, of course, the famous tunnel.
The village itself is primarily merely a place to pass through, to achieve those objectives.
The village does, however, carry the distinction of being one of only a similar few in England which are completely overwhelmed by double yellow lines on virtually every one of its roads; whether major or minor; transitory or cul-de-sac. I must admit though that, as many times as I have passed through the village, I have never once seen a traffic warden.
It is, as you can see, a very lovely place, in its own right.
This one, is especially for Lillian; who yesterday declared herself in need of some colour, to counteract the dismal weather since the weekend.
