A Square Postcard from ...

.... Lechlade , Gloucestershire, England

This is the highest lock on the Thames. Visited a strange place called Faringdon on the way
here. Food at The Woodman, Fernham to be recommended as was the English beer.

Weather hot, humid and terrible thunder last night.

Thinking of visiting Swindon later - the locals say we'll find more culture in a pot of yoghurt!

Wish you were here ?

See you soon

Love from John & Sue

No: don't go to Swindon, John... -- you'll get lost amongst all those roundabouts! (And yes, having lived in Cheltenham for many years, I do wish I was in Lechlade!) Wonderful framing...!
