Photos From England

We did a little less sightseeing, and more visiting, in England. Here are some of our favorite photographs from the second half of our trip.

It, along with the nearby village, has been featured in many popular British films and TV series, including Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle), Cranford, and three of the Harry Potter movies.
