Ovington Village



 Back in the Begining of March I happened to be down near Winchester visiting a few churches. On of them was in a place called Ovington where I took some time to get a few photos from round the village







Looking down the road beside the church











Just along the road from the last photo




From the churchyard you could see these cottages





 that had the builders initials on a stone at the end




The cottages looks the typical type you would expect to see out in a country village





Gates leading to the manor house
 and looking back along the road near the gates




The house here from what I can make out used to be the old village post office






this is a view you get coming ito the village of Ovington
 The other end now and I presume the local pub



  Looking up the road from nea rthe pub towards the Village of Ovington




This path runs past th epub





and goes over a bridge crossing the River Itchen and heads off to a village called Itchen Stoke













The river  is one of the cleanest I've seen










 Time to go, only sad I did not visit the pub as I was off to the next place I wanted to visit

  1. There is nothing to compare to our villages. You must go back and visit the pub. I expect there will be good food served there as well as a good pint.

  2. This is exactly what comes to mind when thinking of an English village with pretty cottages and laneways.
    It's so like those used in films with Agatha Christie's Miss Marple!
