Market Bosworth revisited

....last visited 6 years ago on Tickey and took this picture.  Nothing has altered and this is a better picture than the one I took this morning!!!   The tiny market has not grown any bigger.......

Lay over day today.  Walked the mile up to Market Bosworth.  Luckily a fair part of the walk was tree lined although it was a very busy road to walk along.  I had no recollection of being here before except when we reached the market square. (Geoff of course does remember it.......uncanny......)  This is a really tiny market town and the market itself has very few stalls.  However together with the few shops it had everything we needed including a very pleasant courtyard cafe where we could sit in the shade and even a bowl of water for Barney.
We had passed a sign by the bridge near where we were moored saying Fish & Chips, Sunday 6-9pm.....we wondered what they did the rest of the week!
When we reached the town we saw the pub which did not seem to indicate that frying was restricted to Sunday..
Very English (passed on our walk to the town)
the Parish Church
Yes the sun was still shining....................but later we had some welcome rain........
