Pembridge II

Now looking the other way in the late afternoon light, I was lucky to have a quite time taking these, It is often very busy through here, not to mention the large lorries that use this route to reach mid Wales.

Looks like a nice little village ! How is the fish and chips there? ;-)
John Prior: Thanks Sidney, pretty good I thinksmile
This is a lovely place and a great one to wonder around and photograph. I like this photo, it shows so much detail, really nice.
John Prior: Thank you, it was good to catch it when quiet.
I could settle down here and finally write that novel...
John Prior: Thank you Pekka
I guess the New Inn was new oncesmile You were indeed lucky not to have traffic streaming through here non-stop
John Prior: Thanks Bill, I was fortunate.

I just love that part of the world John where no two houses are the same & everywhere oozes charm
John Prior: I agree Chris, it would be a good place to relocate.
Very nice. Did you know there are postcard collectors who just collect pictures of inns, pubs, hotels and restaurants (in that order of popularity) - and they don't have to be old, though that helps.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, yes I know some photographers do produce postcards, quite a competitive market I would imagine, to do it on a reasonable scale.

I suppose the New inn was new once.Dont get me wrong I do like old world very much great photo
John Prior: Thanks VIntage, perhaps there was an even older inn before it smile
Well, they should really build a by-pass in Pembridge to reduce traffic congestion in the town centre.

It's also safer for the pedestrians.

By the way, isn't that (see left) a post box?!
Really unusual!! wink
John Prior: Thanks LC, It is a shame, but some places are difficult to by-pass. I think the post box is just for the house near it, I understand it is possible to buy ornate ones like this.

That is a quirky looking letter box over the road John, is it genuine do you suppose?
John Prior: Thanks Chad, I think it is just for the house, No doubt they get the odd post card from complete strangers now and then smile
A fine looking chapel over the road John.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, yes, might be a home now.

So charming. I'd love to visit places like this. I was noticing the mailbox to the left and recalling I've seen replicas can be purchased...I've seen a few people with the right style of home have them and I like them. I nearly missed the old, old glass at the top, right.
John Prior: Thank you Sherri, yes I think that is what it is. No doubt some people think it is a posting box and not just for receiving mail.
Blimey!..I wonder what the Old Inn looks like..It would have been spoilt to se the traffic you mention..Nice one John.
John Prior: Thanks Ron, no doubt the Old inn now forms the cellars under the New Innsmile If my 'Time Team' watching has had any beneficial effect on my knowledge smile
This is just so very very English . Must be hundreds of delightful villages like this in England
John Prior: Thanks Richard, yes indeed, lots of gems out there.
You were so lucky with no traffic. It is still very quaint.smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, yes indeed, the whole route is charming when you don't get stuck behind a giant truck.
Nice "after the rain" shot smile
John Prior: Thanks Tom, very mixed weather that day, but a fine late afternoon break.

I quite like this, especially with the street leading us through the image.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, it is a charming place.
Two great pictures of a lovely looking place, John.
John Prior: Thanks a lot Graeme
Certainly were lucky to have no passing traffic John, a good looking place.
John Prior: Thanks Les, yes indeed.
This is really a delightful image of a village street, John. I wonder if any of these charming homes ever go up for sale or perhaps they are just passed on from one generation to the next.
John Prior: Thanks Beverly, I think that they mainly get sold on, I believe the upkeep can be expensive.
Real lovely place, out of time! Nicely shown with your pictures.
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thanks Dom, Yes especially without the traffic.
So rich in textures
