Edensor

Pronounced 'N-sore'
(so WHY didn't they spell it that way???)

From MY Tower you can see this lovely village


Finally after all the years of visiting MY Tower,
I took the peeps there for a visit


It was like a step back in time…..

A traditional old style Cafe
(that makes dogs VERY welcome)



Proper RED Telephone box
and 
Can you see the Parish Notice Board


Old fashioned letter box set in a wall


Bricked up windows to avoid the 1696 Window Tax


All the houses were unique


and their gardens were immaculate!!!!


Looking down the main street…
Can you see MY Tower in the distance?
Just to the left of the Church spire


I'll tell you all about that lovely church tomorrow

Loves and licky kisses

  4. Window TAX? OMCS you have got to be kidding me. That is so funny.
    Around Raleigh there are some monster new homes being build with a gazillon windows.

    My goodness Leah what a beautiful Edensor is a beautiful village...sometimes we think a step back in time is what everyone needs to realize just WHAT is important. I love the RED phone booth.

  8. Window tax, mom would have died in a house with no windows, no light no nothing, it is a beautiful town though, they would have probably asked her to leave cos her gardens are not so pretty right now. Isnt it great the dogs are so welcome. stella rose

  11. Wow, we would never think there could be a window tax! Of course back in the day the powers that be did like to tax things like tea so maybe windows aren't too far fetched. BOL!

  18. what a lovely place - everything is so green!!! And we are going to go read more about that window tax. We have so many windows in our house we would never get any treats if we had to pay taxes on them:)

    Mom doesn't know when the last time was she saw a real phone booth:)
