This afternoon we motored over to Sudbury to do what Ann calls 'a big shop'. We came home a different way to our usual, and a back road out of a small village (off the beaten track) awarded us with- not another village, but an even smaller hamlet. It had about a dozen small cottages in it.
All were of ancient date; most had been repaired, or restored at various dates, and all were quite charming.
It's what we most love about Suffolk (and remember that we are, by origin, Norfolk people) - that if you can take a small back road out of a little known village, you will often find yourself in an early settlement that you had no idea was there - and usually with delightful discoveries to be made.
Like, say, for instance, the above.
