The Weekend

So I made it to Charlbury for the weekend and the last of the snow. I'm glad to say the Hound loves snow and shuns those namby pamby coats other dogs wear to keep out the cold. Our usual walk through the snow drenched fields around Cornbury Park to the Plough at Finstock was a delight.

So I thought I'd share a few photos. And continuing the Downton theme of a recent Blog here are photos of Lee Place, the Charlbury home of the Duke of Malborough and Cornbury Park from across some shivering sheep. Cornbury is home to the Rotherwicks; Lady Rotherwick is the sister in law of the new Governor of the Bank of England.

It is a little know fact that the village of Downton, as portrayed in the TV series, is in fact Bampton, a village some 8 miles from Charlbury (and so in the PM's constituency; how apt).

Back early Sunday for a flatwarming in Tottenham- somewhat of a contrast to Charlbury; my niece and her boyfriend throwing a party for the family. And now it's off to Leeds.
