 OLD VILLAGE BY PHONE

On a recent trip to England I decided to see what kind of images I could capture with just an iPhone 5.  Some of the pictures have been adjusted for brightness and some have been cropped.

 This is the village of Thorpe Mandeville in Northamptonshire. It's mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The population is right around 200 and has been for centuries.  My family lived here from 1975 to 1978.  This is the view of the countryside right across the street from the house where we lived.

Here's the village church, dating back to the 13th century.

Tue Manor House was built in the early 17th century. While we lived in the village our landlord lived in this incredible home.  

Next to the Manor is a tiny road that's been there forever it's called Bulls Lane and it's a beautiful spot.

Another view from Bulls Lane

It's a wonderful little village and I can't wait to go back.

We'll talk again soon.
