“We took a charming walk to Charlcombe…”

“…sweetly situated in a little green valley.”

So wrote Jane Austen on 2 June 1799.  One recent Sunday we followed in her footsteps.  It was indeed charming. 

Here’s a flavour of what we saw along the way.  There may have been some hot drinks and snacks consumed along the way.

Lansdown Crescent, Bath. Our favourite…

About deborah @ the magic jug

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

    Lovely, Deborah, and that’s quite the imaginative use of an old bicycle wheel!


  2. I love that Jane Austen sign – whereabouts is it?


I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
