Pictures taken in the tranquil 14 century village of Castle Combe main street, market cross and original wool weavers cottages close to the "By Brook" which provided power to run the wool mills. The village has been used as a backdrop for a number of *movies, more recently summer scenes of the film "Stardust" and was more famously featured in the film musical "Doctor Dolittle". Followers of the TV drama Poirot will also be interested to hear that the village was a location for one episode of the popular series.

A picture or the picturesque Bearslake Inn at Sourton near Okehampton on the edge of Dartmoor is a very inviting place for a stop over en-rout to the west country. See the link for additional information.

One hour and forty minutes by car from central London Sherston is an inviting weekend retreat and convenient for the exploration of the many historic towns and villages of the central south of England. It's only a short distance from Malmsbury and a leisurely drive to Cirencester. If in the Village on a Friday night the "sing along" at the Carpenters Arms is not to be missed, is the quickest way to meet up with many of the interesting locals and to hear about what's going on in the village. Weekends are not complete without a lunch time visit to the Rattlebone inn next to the church where you will find great food, refreshments and more friendly interesting villagers to meet up with. Click on the Church of the Holy Cross link for a high resolution  image of the nave.
