I had an appointment today about an hour’s drive away in a village called Snaith. I’ve been 3 times now and never actually seen the village center, but today I took a wrong turn and found myself among the shops.
This part of Yorkshire isn’t particularly scenic – it’s very flat and not particularly green – and yet this village was a delight. I snapped some photos to show you.
I love the gorgeous Georgian windows and the church nestling at the bottom of the street. It all looks as it must have looked for hundreds of years. Well except the horrendous PVC windows closest to the camera on the left.
You don’t get too many of these half-timbered buildings in this part of England
And I love the butchers
Here are more lovely Georgian buildings
And the pub
And finally, I just loved the name of this street – BeastFair – and the gorgeous old brick on this building. Just look at all the shades and colors in those bricks. Fantastic!
This is one thing I’ve really appreciated since we got back – that no matter where you are, you can suddenly turn a corner and find beautiful buildings like these.
And in case there’s any doubt which county we’re in …
