A lovely afternoon watching cricket on the village green opposite my mum’s house.

Some of the pitchas from East Meon, a beautiful little village in Hampshire about 3 miles from Clanfield. It’s a very sleepy and picturesque place, there’s a thousand year old church in the village and a couple of lovely pubs. We had lunch in the Izaak Walton where we had a below average plowman’s and a Bowman’s Ale – I can’t remember which one.
East Meon was mentioned in the Domesday Book and even featured in the English Civil War – the Parliamentarians camped outside the village before the Battle of Cheriton.
During the WWII the Luftwaffe dropped 38 high explosive bombs and approximately 3,500 incendiaries on the Parish – stupidly they only managed to kill a pig.

We spent another day doing nice things – this time we visited Uppark, an 18th Century English country house owned by the National Trust. Some later additions to the property were 2 pavilions, one of which now operates as a lovely cafe serving cream teas – there’s a huge lawn at the front overlooking the South Downs with some lovely views. Unfortunately is was a bit chilly and it started to rain so we couldn’t sit outside and enjoy the view from the lawn – next time.
