   The Cotswold lavender country of Snowshill, the village overlooking Broadway and the Vale of Evesham in Worcestershire. The prime colour time for the lavender is July and August. And there are thirty-five varieties of lavender!! Do not ask me what they are. I do not know everything.

   The medieval magic of Burford, west Oxfordshire, which is well worth the 45 minute bus ride from Oxford. Burford contains everything that makes  life worth living a village worth visiting: a fantastical High Street packed with crookedly picturesque houses, plenty of old pubs, an atmospheric fifteenth century parish church, lovely tea rooms, and those fetching little antique shops.

    I LOVE THIS COLLAGE BUSINESS!!!! I had far too much fun selecting these photographs and obsessively, maniacally moving them about lovingly arranging them just for you. (top image, Ron Adams; left-to right images from Paul HP, DreaMaTrix, Brownie Bear, and Joe Wright, all on flickr)

George Harrison’s Friar Park estate in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. The Friar Park estate was owned by Sir Frank Crisp from 1875 until his death in 1919. It then passed on to Roman Catholic nuns belonging to the Salesians of Don Bosco order. The nuns ran a local school in Henley, the Sacred Heart School, but by the late 1960s Friar Park was in a state of disrepair and due to be demolished. Then George saved it.
