Une très jolie ville
Behold a collection of photographs of Bradford on Avon, a quaint British town in the South West of England that is bursting with beautiful buildings and tucked away treasures. Walking around the town on a balmy day, climbing many many steps to "Tory" and discovering some of the most beautiful little houses I've ever come across, I was reminded that some of the best things in life truly are free. Making time to walk around a beautiful setting is so very enjoyable, particularly when you discover such charming buildings that all contribute to the overall character of a town such as this one. This cottage is bursting with character and is often used in film sets. It almost whisks you right back to the time of Charles Dickins with its minute front door and warped ceilings. The photographs were taken high up on a hill called "Tory" where quirky and beautiful homes scatter a lane overlooking views of Bradford on Avon - these homes are extremely desirable which is reflected in the price tag, but with a small public footpath intertwined among them you can take in the stunning views for free... A tiny chapel can be found way up on the hill. St Mary's is so sweet and calm tucked out of the way of the hustle and bustle. Another quirky feature about the houses on Tory and Middle Rank is that their gardens lay in front of the properties, seperated from the houses by the walkway. It is obvious that most of the dwellers have green fingers as the gardens are all immaculately kept, again adding to the charm of the place. As a cat lover, I was delighted to stumble across this puss who had obviously assumed the role of "guard cat" - who needs dogs anyway?
Bradford is also full of arty, boutique style shops which sell a range of shabby-chic items from restored furniture, to interior decor and pretty trinkets.
