The problem with dull grey winter days is I tend to stay known haunts......
Anyway a stroll around.....
Dedham is a pretty village of the sort that most people think Essex doesn't possess. It is famed as being somewhere John Constable painted.
This is a portion of the roof under the walkway through the tower... very fine!
This is Dedham Mill oft painted but Constable. Now luxury flats.
And so to Flatford on another day I might have walked as it is a lovely stroll.
Mr Quacks wasn't entirely happy posing for this. A bit windy and it looked very wet down there!
The farm building was open and look who came !!
Frankly the trust should have kicked everyone and let me sit with my book and a good wine in front of this!
This is my second November scone of the month (Honey & Walnut) and again excellent. It's the best Flatford have done this year.
