I recently revisited the village of Turville, in the Chiltern hills in Buckinghamshire, a few miles from where Mel lives, with Mel, Isla and my Dad.

The village is infamous for a number of TV shows that were filmed there. The Vicar of Dibley, Midsomer Murders and some of you may recoginise the windmill in the right corner of the photo, from the classic childrens favourite, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

We visited the church and were delighted to find a cosy warm interior after the chilly wind outside. This stained glass inside, affords views out over the village, through its traditonal leaded glass. It reminded me of one of the episodes of the Vicar of Dibley where there is huge discussion over a stained glass window and its depiciton.

There is no such confusion in relation to this window as it depicts the church's name, St. Mary the Virgin.

We strolled around the village admiring the landmarks and mingling with some tourists and hill walkers before retiring to The Bull and Butcher pub. It is the ideal place to drop in to on an Autumn afternoon, to warm by the fire, and have a hot chocolate, pot of tea, or a stronger drink, after a stroll through the town or over the hills.

The baketmaking sessions were on this weekend, you can read all about them over at Margie's Crafts The Vintage Store.

Big hugs,

Oh, I loved the Vicar and all the characters from the show. There's nothing nicer than a stop at the pub on a chilly fall day for a bite to eat and a cup of something warm or a pint!
