Moreton in Marsh

I took very few photographs whilst we were away, as although it was very sunny a lot of the time - and extremely wet when it wasn't - it was too cold to take my gloves off for very long. Moreton in Marsh is a really pretty village and like many of the villages in the area has very wide streets. This is because back in the Middle Ages and Tudor times this area was the centre of the woollen industry and the streets were wide, usually funnelling at one end, for the sheep to be herded into market.

The buildings are all built from this wonderful honey coloured stone, which gives them a really warm and cosy look.

We had lunch in a dog friendly pub that was probably an old coaching inn.

The Market Hall, built at the narrowing end of the wide street.

I just read your previous post, Ruby looks so sweet. I bet she doesn't want to miss out on a trip and that's why she's right there in the motorhome. Whenever we go anywhere and get the suitcases out, our dogs have always figured out it meant a trip (or the dogsitter or kennel).
What a pretty village, so interesting about the streets, but brrr it looks cold!
