Thriplow continued

I thought this barn was absolutely beautiful. I am sure that at one time the roof would have been thatched rather than the corrugated tin that is on it now.

This barrel or gypsy caravan was in a garden on the edge of the village and looks as though someone is living in it.

I believe that this is connected with forming pats of butter because of the design in the bowl. It was among a collection of artefacts from village life adjacent to the forge.

This lovely door is at the west end of the church.

Thriplow looks a lovely place to visit, maybe I'll have to put it on the map when we're up your end of the country next.
Great collection of pics, gives a good flavour of the place, are you sure you don't work for the tourist board LOL
