Just before the new year I visited Kidmore End near Reading so I could get a few photos of the church for my blog. I parked near the church and the first thing I noticed was this village pump
No doubt you could still put a bucket on it and draw water
There are a few of these type wells to be found in villages around. Once people would have come here to draw a bucket of water for use at home, I know what it is like because I used to have to get water from a well as a kid in Ireland when I visited my Gran
Looking from the churchyard I noticed wheat looked like the village pond across the road
Next door to the church is the village primary school which was built in 1856 but this part looks like it was built around the 1970's
This part however was built in 1856, again quite typical of what you would see in the local villages
As I took the photo of the school from the opposite side of the road while I was there I turned around and took one across the village pond. Not sure where the ducks are though.
