East Meon, Kodak Portra 160

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.

Uppark House Cafe, Fuji Pro 800Z

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.

Broadhalfpenny Down Cricket Club, Fuji Pro 400H

Cricket is the World’s greatest game. The pillar upon which modern civilisation is built, it is the last bastion of democracy, equality, fair play and sportsmanship. Well, that’s what I think anyway. I really love cricket.

Taken upon the hallowed turf of Broadhalfpenny Down Cricket Club. (The Birthplace of Modern Cricket) This makes my village the birthplace of modern civilisation.
