The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage, Ashton-under-Hill, Worcestershire

You could say that this photo was a complete accident. My wife and I drove to the Worcestershire village of Ashton-under-Hill to visit the historic medieval parish church.

We set our satnav for the church's postcode, but when we arrived in the village our satnav seemed to be directing us away from the church, whose tower we could see over the trees.

So to cut our walking time we simply pulled over to the side of the road as soon as we could.

By happy accident that put us directly in front of this pretty thatched and timber-framed cottage, and directly across the road from another thatched cottage of the same age. Talk about a happy outcome!
