Above photo shows (I think 'Little Hall' to the right) on Lavenham Market Place. Ann in the centre foreground. Should say that all three photos shown today were taken in Lavenham Market Place on Thursday.
Above is the Guildhall in Lavenham. It dates from circa 1520, which makes the Guildhall here, in Highdale, a goodish hundred and fifty years older, but ours has been added to and altered over the centuries, while Lavenham's is all of a lump - 1520.
Shops on Lavenham Market Place. All three photoes are taken from the Market Place. It is said (with some truth, I think) that if you stand on Lavenham Market Place and look all round you, every building you can see was standing there at the time of the Wars of the Roses.
I really started today's blog entry to record the fact that today we've picked and eaten the first two ripe figs this year from our garden. Delicious they were, too.
