Thatched Cottage, Welford-on-Avon, Warwickshire

The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage, Welford-on-Avon, Warwickshire

The Warwickshire village of Welford-on-Avon grew up around an ancient ford across the River Avon.

Clustered around the medieval parish church are some of the prettiest thatched cottages in England. among them is this wonderful timber-framed cottage across from the churchyard.

I made a special trip to explore Welford-on-Avon from my home in the Cotswolds.

I was actually intending to photograph the cottage across the lane from this one, but the light wasn't in the right place when I arrived. I think this photo will do quite nicely as the silver lining in that particular cloud!
