This time, though we'd done a 5-6 mile walk in the rain, we decided we should look at some of the locations. I started as a big fan of Downton Abbey, but finally gave it up last year, too much drama, same old, same old. But I still like the look of it, so off we went to explore.
The church of St. Mary's is where Mary and Mathew got married and where Edith got jilted at the altar. Lovely church dating from the 13th century though there was probably one there even earlier than that. In the church graveyard there was actually a tombstone with the name Crowley on it.
