MILFORD - Everyone's place
Antiques & Things: Greetings From a “Green and Pleasant Land”… But a Rather Damp One!
After two weeks of travel down narrow winding lanes with hedge rows that allow no ‘view’ whatsoever, then onto more ’civilised’ developed roads that seem to go for just a few hundred metres before ending in a never ending series of roundabouts, we are just a bit weary of the West Countries roading system! And finding ‘a parking spot’ can be almost a mind blowingly stressful experience in the small villages and towns. Mind you, it is beautiful countryside but, gee, it takes a long time to actually get anywhere.
However, we have been seeking out lots of great goodies from Car Boot Sales, Street Markets, Antique Centres, and Fairs like the monstrous one at Shepton Mallet. With just over a week to go before we fly home we are now somewhat jaded ‘buyers’ but the thrill of finding the good stuff ensures we continue on with ‘The Hunt’. Pics are attached of just a small sample of interesting pieces to be shipped home.
All The Best - Bernard.
