Chittlehampton and Devon

On Monday I drove down to Devon to stay with Paul and Antony in Chittlehampton. Had a flat tire on the way - long story. Paul and Antony rescued me, we went to Knightshayes Court for some more National Trust sight-seeing, then off to the cottage for a yummy dinner. The town is charming, thatched cottages, a beautiful 13th C. church on the hill.

The view up the street towards their cottage - thatched roofs everywhere! Their cottage is several centuries old - used to be a pub. Inside, the old oak beams are not straight so the ceilings have v. interesting shapes.
A view from above the village towards the church with its beautiful and commanding tower - the church was a place of pilgramage for several centuries because of a local saint

The men rescue me!

My fab Ford Focus in not so fab condition!
