As we strolled through the village, I took numerous photos of the cottages. I love domestic architecture and am particularly fond of English cottages.
Many of the cottages in Finchingfield have thatched roofs. Each thatcher/artisan has a signature method of decorating part of the roof and if you know the thatchers, you can recognize each one's work by the design.
Cottages often have names. I enjoyed reading the names and wondering about the origin of names, who chose them, how long they had been known locally by that particular name. Often the cottages were named after locations or flowers or occupations.
As I walked along the main road in Finchingfield I noticed a sweet little cottage.
And I took a photo of the ducks on the green for him.
We ate a wonderful lunch at the Fox Inn Pub.
As we walked back to the car at the end of our visit to Finchingfield, I saw this little silver beauty. I snapped a picture of it for my brother.
