It was a rainy day and Greg thought it would be nice for us to see the little village of Ashwell. It wasn’t too far from Letchworth which made for a nice little outing even though the weather was a bit dreary. The architecture in Ashwell spans several centuries and the village has been well preserved.
Ashwell springs is the principal source to the River Cam, water rises from several holes in the natural chalk. It was a pretty area to take a walk.
The church is from the 14th century. We didn’t go inside but I later read that it contained medieval graffiti which highlights the plight of people that survived the bubonic plague.
We thought this was a brilliant way to repurpose a phone booth! Good thing Gordon didn’t really need it!!
We thought Ashwell was full of English charm and we enjoyed our walk around the village!
Where we stayed: Gregory James (our good friend) B&B 👍👍
