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
