Lavenham Part 4

We will continue our walk around Lavenham taking in some visual treats










Coming to the outskirts of the village some modern housing is inter mingled









A typical cottage garden
















Lavenham has been used for quite a number of films
The Witchfinder General (1968)
The 13 Chairs (1970)
Lovejoy (a TV series in the 1990's)
Apotheosis 2 (1969)
The Canterbury Tales (1972)
Barry Lyndon (1975)
Playing Away (1986)
Spun Gold, Children of the New forest and Highway all feature Lavenham

Still lots more to come on this delightful village

It's thirty years since I was in Lavenham, Barbara, so thanks for all the memories you have raised!

Thanks so much for continuing to post of Lavenham. I love the cottage gardens, they were wonderful all over England!

What gorgeous flowers...roses (I think), hollyhocks, and lavender. I've never seen plants so vigorous here. And may I just say, that it is always fun to see Alan featured somewhere. Now if you could tuck yourself in a little more often...

The cottage garden is just so perfect.

It must be a good size village. I enjoyed seeing what you call a typical cottage garden. Looks wonderful to me.

The hollyhocks are right in tune with the pink/salmon color theme of many of these houses and other buildings. I enlarged all the photos and had a nice time looking through them on this post and the previous one too. Feels a bit like walking along them in person.

Visuals is right!

The seemingly slanted building..the flowers..the wrought iron gate..the colors of the buildings..the cars..the windows..THE DOORS!

LOVE IT..wish I was there!

I've updated my blogs..finally.

Blessings to you always

Is there some significance to the color pink in the village? So many of the house are painted shades of pink.

I really like the warm, dusky rose color of some of the buildings.

Still enjoying my visit to Essex!
The hollyhocks look splendid.

such a pretty town and the houses insipre thoughts of those who have lived there in years gone by.
