Thame

The Six Bells at Thame at Sunset, image © Graham Piper 2011Four brave souls (Helen, Simone, Michael and Graham) ventured out to Thame in a few spots of rain (in Woodcote at least) and were rewarded for their bravery by what was to be a superb evening of totally dry weather and the most fantastic sunset. The comments on the towns architecture and quirky buildings came thick and fast and continued all evening as we wound ourselves through the streets and alleyways of Thame. A wonderful church and the what must be the largest graveyard we had ever seen was a nice high spot, as were the strangely placed bandstand reminiscent of the Maharajas Well at Stoke row and the full size plastic cow outside a pub (the cow was black and was segmented into meat cuts with white lines). As the night closed in the sunset began to light the sky with superb colours of red orange and purple. A pint and packet of crisps were enjoyed in the garden of The Thatch pub before a slow wander back to the cars past many other pubs and restaurants.

We would all recommend a visit if you can make it, it's well worth it.

Graham
