Swalcliffe, England

This evening I have arrived for a short stay at the village of Swalcliffe in southern England. Location is near Banbury which in turn is 80 miles NW of London.

Although not technically in the Cotswolds, Swalcliffe has all the 'feel' of a Cotswolds village with ancient, honey coloured sandstone buildings some of which have thatched roofs. This place gives the impression of being a set for Midsomer Murders or Inspector Morse! I am advised that nearby Broughton Castle is regularly used as a filming location.

Here is a portfolio of images taken late this afternoon.

This is a side view of the Inn cum B&B where I am staying.

Local parish (Anglican) church. Ukranian flag relates to an upcoming fund raising concert.

Classic car: Alfa Romaro 'Spider'. Possibly 1966 manufacture.

Here comes the cavalry!

Tithe barn dating from 15th century

 Interesting thatched roof with church in background
