June Roof: Stone

Castle Combe "The Prettiest Village In England"

Castle Combe “The Prettiest Village In England”

Back to England for this photo. An old photo (1998), which explains the fuzzy focus. You can nonetheless make out those marvellously steep roofs/rooves clad with what look like slabs of stone. These are seriously sturdy buildings. This Cotswolds town is known as “The Prettiest Village In England” but I suspect that’s self-proclaimed. 😉

This post is my first entry in Cee’s Which Way Challenge — and, sneakily, it’s also my second entry in Travel Photos Monday. Two challenges for the price of one! All the photos are of signposts I came across while ‘rambling’ — a delightful English word for putting on walking boots and getting close to nature.
