Laycock aka Cranfordroses round the doorJust back from a lovely weekend in Wiltshire staying with family.  I had a  great  time with lots of laughter and sitting in the sun relaxing just what I needed.

This morning we went to the beautiful National Trust village of Laycock where they film the BBC series Cranford  (the original book was written by Mrs Gaskell )it really lovely but the locals must get fed up with the tourists and the film crews.   However , some of them seemed to have thriving little businesses selling plants and even  embroidered cards all these goodies were set up outside the cottages with honesty boxes  or notices asking for the payment to be put through the letter box.

I will watch Cranford with a different perspective now apparently they were filming a winter scene last week and the rain washed away all the fake snow!.
