A Village Scene

By strokebloke  
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. Smile

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. Grin

I'm afraid I only saw the canal, Jack, but had a lovely lunch in a pub overlooking the water. From what I see here, I missed out by not going to see the village. Maybe next time.

As with many places, it is most pleasing from a distance Pamela.
There is nothing much to see in the village - one or two interesting properties, but ......

I've seen this view on numerous occasions and promised myself that one day .... Grin
Well, on Sunday, I did Wink
