There's hardly a county of England I've not visited. I've also spent considerable time in Wales and Scotland, and someday I'll add pages reflecting that. But the English countryside is dear to my heart, so I'm sharing some specific places special to me.

One of the first shires I visited was Oxfordshire, as a student. This is my residence at St. Anne's College, a photo taken on a return visit.

My husband's people hail from Dorsetshire, as it used to be known. The church at Langton Herring, not far from Weymouth, and a view of Lulworth Cove.

Nottingham, in the Midlands, is well worth visiting. The former residence of the Dukes of Newcastle has become a fine museum, and Bestwood, country house of the Dukes of St. Albans, is a hotel.

On a hill beside Lake Windermere. With cow.

Having family connections in Buckinghamshire, within convenient reach of London, I've come to deeply love it. The deer herd at Stonor Park, and Marlow on the Thames.

Ledbury in Worcestershire is a market town with a great deal of character, as can be seen here.
