An Autumn Amble Around The Village

 Lazy post today, not feeling too sparkling.
Thought I would take a few photos of our morning constitutional, on this grey and rather damp Autumn morning. I hate wet autumn days, they are all too brown.
Right, we start up the lane

 Past the Church


The view of the rectory from the lych gate




The school on the main road. All quiet as it's half term


We ambled down London Road and across the village green in front of the village Hall 



Not a soul to be seen from the London Road Cottages 


Up High Street , past Auntie Glads


Then  its past the pensioner bungalows and Marion Jones' very VERY scary rabbits 



On to the village pond ( its in the trees honest )


Up Well Street 

Beyond the chapel 




Back up to London road where the newly renovated Victorian semis have been put up for sale 



 Then it's up Byron Street, with Gop hill clearly seen dominating the village
Turned the corner back into Chapel Street 
The Chapel building was constructed originally as a market hall in 1700 


And finally, after getting home , there waiting on the corner were the DIY lesbians 
with bin bags of donated bread for the field livestock

  5. Trelawnyd has become a ghost village ruled by The Rabbits of Evil - Margaret and Dennis and their baby son Damien. SOS - run for Gop Hill!

  7. Damp and grey here also. Thank you for the lovely wander around the village. Have a restful inside day. Maybe all the dogs and Albert will be snoozy as well.

  9. The rabbits do look pretty scary. But then so does Winnie....

    The village was remarkably quiet. Breakfast time perhaps?

    2. I'm in a row of back to back terraced houses sĂ ndwiched between 2 main roads that lead to motorways. It's sirens galore here and I can't sleep without them, weird.

  11. I really liked taking that "walk" with you. It's raining and blowing here today. I love that there is so much history there. How old would you say those homes are on High street (Auntie Glad's)? -Jenn

    1. Auntie gladys' home is one of the oldest in the village and was originally part of a school built in the late 1600 s

  12. I enjoyed that walk. Tired now though so feet up and a cup of tea.

  13. Those rabbits are hideous.

  14. From the looks of it everyone apart from you and the lesbians (and dogs, of course) were still in bed. Or maybe they'd all been abducted by aliens disguised as scary rabbits.

  15. Lovely photos, we have a very pretty village which unfortunately has an unbelievably busy road slap through the middle, apparently a bypass has been asked for since 1957 oh well.
    I love the photo of your gorgeous pooches and the sinister rabbits are hilarious x

  17. Oh I thoroughly enjoyed this ! I love your village .. I want to live in a village .. an old English village.
    Actually I live in an old USA village but somehow, the charm is lacking.
    or maybe it is just the pups :)

  18. Thanks for the tour!

  19. I so enjoyed the walk about! Makes me long for olden days when the pace was not so rushed.

  20. Great walk, especially with your companions, but I couldn't help thinking, what do you do when some fool driver comes through too fast? Not many verges. (I'm remembering when Albert was nearly run over ... wish we could tell them, 'Now, stay to the side. Humans can be idiots sometimes.')

  21. Thanks for the walk, demonic looking bunnies

  23. I love the lush surroundings. As we fade into winter it reminds me that there are other places I could be.

  26. You have the best place to walk; all the oulde charming stone buildings, not a soul to be seen, looks peaceful.

  27. Now that is a walk I would take even in the rain. Thank you for sharing.

  28. Lovely village and walk.
    Made so much better by three gud dugs.
    What you need to do is get a puppy carrier that you can strap on to your chest. That way Mary can come along and the village gossips will have a field day with that one.

    cheers, parsnip

  31. I was looking to see if your walked past the house with the black bin bags and hoped for a picture. Are the bin bags still on the windows and have they started to tidy the garden?

    Interesting village that you live in.

  34. Did you get sunshine this afternoon? We popped to Edenshine at Afonwen for lunch and the weather was beautiful!
    I'm always tempted to drive the extra 7 odd miles to turn up on your doorstep, but I wouldn't be so rude 😉X

  37. Nice to see village scenes. Next time take photos on a nice sunny day.

  38. Nice walk, even in the rain, thank you John. Wouldn't want to run into those bunnies on a dark and stormy night !

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a lovely place for an amble... unlike here, where you're likely to be shot.

    Mary in a puppy carrier strapped to your chest would be quite the sight to see!

  40. What a beautiful village! How lucky are you all. I love cool damp Autumn days.

  41. So much to look at as you go along! I like my bush walks but at times I'd like a bit more variety to keep me out of my spiralling mind as I walk. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can only assume those rabbits are for Halloween as they seem to be channeling Donny Darko. Are they possessed? Or just gateways for eldritch and squamous Chthulian beings of unspeakable evil to invade our universe? Yes I've been on a Lovecraft binge - calamari will not be featuring on our menu any time soon. LOL

  43. Lovely tour around your Village. Guess I have been following your blog for quite some time now as I recognised a few places!

  44. Bloody hell! Demonic rabbits in Trelawnyd.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh my gawd ..... those rabbits are THE most sinister looking bunnies EVER. I think even Rosy would pass them by quickly.

    It doesn't look 'very brown' to me, it looks like a very grey day :-(

  46. I really enjoyed this post (even the scary rabbits)!
