The Village of Collingbourne Ducis




I posted some photos of the church a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would show the village in this weeks Our World Tuesday





The view I got looking down from the road leading to the village hall





 Looking along the main road past one of the thatched cottages

The pub is called the Blue Lion and unusual name, most are called the Red Lion


The village sign 






An old Mile Stone














Another of the roads through the village towards some thatched cottages













Row of cottages














Another of the thatched cottages 


Topically  looking English  cottage


There is even a stream running through the village 






Bridges crossing them


A thatched owl on a cottage porch

This cottage was in the first photo and I'm sure it was a pub at one time now like many it's closed and converted into a house


Finally back to the village hall.
 
Hope you enjoyed the little tour

  11. It's a pretty village. I like the brick and flint buildings, the thatched cottages and the unusually named Blue Lion Inn. Thank you for sharing, Bill.
