Thatched Cottage In Bagendon

The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage in Bagendon

A pretty thatched cottage stands beside the lane running through the Cotswold village of Bagendon, Gloucestershire, near Cirencester.

You could say that this photo came about by accident; I actually made a special trip to Bagendon from my home near Bourton-on-the-Water to visit the historic village church. To my chagrin, I found the church locked, with no indication of where I could find a keyholder.

I was simply walking out of the churchyard (that's the stone wall you can see in the lower right of this photo) when the sun came out and lit the lovely little thatched cottage on the far side of the lane. I stopped dead in my tracks and took this photo before the sun disappeared again.
