  • St. Mary's Church...

    Painswick was originally called Wycke or Wykeham.The name changed to Wyke Pagani around 1150.Now my photo is showing the tower of the church.It houses a peal of bells, the earliest dates from 1686.The number of bells was increased to 12 in 1821; To celebrate the tercentenary in 1986, the 13th bell was added & a 14th bell was also added in 1993 !

  • Thai food in the cotswolds

    The March hare is the restaurant attached to Cardynham house hotel and we heard great reviews about it from other guests although we didn't eat dinner there ourselves (I was pregnant and off spicy food!). We did have breakfast in it though and the atmosphere was very pleasant and the service good.

  • On The Way To Minchinhampton...

    This is another photo of such villages taken by me on our way to Minchinhampton ! Amazingly beautiful !It looks like a movie set or maybe a miniature village !Perched on a hill, this route has many beautiful sights along the way because we were climbing the hills hence could see the small valleys below !

  • On The Way To Minchinhampton...

    Our next destination after Stroud was Minchinhampton so Patrick was looking for the best route to take me there...We passed through some scenic villages & it's irrelevant to stop asking people to know the names of those villages...I just snapped away & most of the times I didn't take any photos... Simply enjoying my eyes, stucked in my memory...
