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.
