From time to time I have to convince myself that moving out of London was not a mistake and one of the best places at which to do that is a small town south of Bath not far from Frome called Nunney. It has a stream ambling through the middle in a very photogenic manner under houses and little bridges and even on to the road in rainy weather. It has one of the biggest and best-preserved ruined castles I know sitting in its own moat bang in the middle of town.
