A Visit to Burford


I visited Burford with my wife as a day out on our Wedding Anniversary, must admit I could have a different day when it was warmer. On the day of our visit it was perishing with a clod wind not helping.

 This is Burford High Street, a typical Cotswold town if you like. I pass though here quite often going to Wales along the A44. The town dates back to Saxon times so is full of history, I took a few photos of the place when we walked round so you can see yourself.





This is one of the road which leads to the baptist church as we came out of the car park




Another of the buildings in Burford, Think it may be a hotel
Not sure about this building but I think it's called Tolsey, a market house from Tudor times now a museum.
Looking down the High Street from the War Memorial




Very Tempted to go in here for some Cheese
 One of the side alleys leading to a house



Brush Shop, you can get all types here

This is the River Windrush that runs round the town going through Witney before joining up with the Thames at New Bridge












This is the lower end of the High Street  as you come to the bridge over the Windrush





One of the older buildings which now Burford House Hotel



One of the pubs along the High Street this one is the Mermaid
This is the Place we ended up at. Hufkins it is a bakers and tea shop. It was lunch time so I treated my wife to Lunch and very nice it was too. I might add they also serve High Tea and there were quite a few foreign tourists enjoying one. Next  Time I we visit High Tea is on the cards 


After I went to visit the church for some photos .
 This looks towards St Johns Church and the older building are the  Almshouses which were for the town poor they were Founded by Richard Earl of Warwick in the year 1457
 And this is the main entrance to the St Johns Church and if you want to see my blog on that then click on the link.
