The character and rural charm, the history. It was a task to find the place but I did enjoy traversing the winding roads through the countryside a great way to get the true essence of life in rural England
We were walking past the church commenting on how part of it looked more recent. A gentleman overheard us and kindly pointed out the inscription over the door of the church showing that it had been bombed in 1940 and partly rebuilt. He then unlocked the church to show us around. We liked Great Chishall and the surrounding area very much because not only was it very beautiful but the people were exceptionally welcoming. We even had a quick look online to see if we could buy a place there. Sadly it may be out of our price range at the moment, well the houses we liked anyway but we are storing the location away for future reference. We ate a lovely roast dinner at the King William IV on the Sunday and Monday spent a full day at the Imperial War Museum. Monday night we went into Duxford and went to a local pub called The Plough. Where again everyone was very welcoming and chatty.
