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

  10. Very English indeed. There must be a story to the Blue Lion.

  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.
