"But I have a perfect village of my own finding, which I pride myself is quite unknown. It is Chelsworth. It lies completely hidden in a little valley. Its cottages are irregular, very well kept and finely timbered. It borders a stream, a quiet reedy stream, whose banks are lined with rich and gigantic trees. I can't tell you why I think it is perfect. Perhaps it is because Chelsworth has been left to itself." Julian Tennyson

    How lovely this looks, but sadly I am running Thetford Open Gardens the same day!

    Thank you! And what a shame, we can't go to yours. Maybe next year.
