Thatched Cottage, Hemingford Abbots, Cambridgeshire

The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage in Hemingford Abbots, Cambridgeshire

Hemingford Abbots is a pretty village on the River Ouse in Cambridgeshire, just a few miles from the historic town of St Ives (not to be confused with the town of the same name in Cornwall!).

I came to Hemingford Abbots on a wonderful riverside walk from the National Trust's Houghton Mill to St Ives. The trail led me along the river bank to Hemingford Abbots and on to the neighbouring village of Hemingford Grey, home to Hemingford Grey Manor, the former home of author Lucy Boston.

While I was passing through the village I spotted this lovely thatched cottage near the village pub. What a wonderful sight!
