Some photos from near the church I visited in my blog the last two weeks. Checkendon dates back since before the 7th century when records started and is mentioned in the Domesday Book
I parked up near the church and this is a small green beside it with the village sign
The village sign above one of the nicer ones in the area. I seen the like before and they remind me of a pub one sign.
On the right one of the village cottages
An old barn now used for offices
Above looks towards the village recreation grounds while on the right the drive leading to Checkendon Court
Some of the Tudor stile housed in Checkendon
Pub which closed many years ago
The sign is a bit confusing as it says Quiet Lane on each pointer. On the right the road going through the village
Tudor styled house
The Lych gate leads to the church while the small path you see to the right leads to the Village primary School , you can make it out between the gate and trees.
That's it a little taste of an Oxfordshire Village
One last thing I changed the background to the blog to show the Oxfordshire countryside Hope you approve

That was a wonderful tour around a quintessential English village. I love the Tudor homes.ReplyDelete

Thanks for the little tour around this pretty little village. I like that background too!ReplyDelete
Another lovely English village. I like village signs, they always have bits and pieces about the village intertwined in the scene.ReplyDelete
Interesting conversion, from a barn into an office!ReplyDelete
