Scenic Sunday in Herefordshire

I've finally found the time to look through the dozens of shots which I took during our recent stay in Herefordshire and thought you might enjoy seeing some of the interesting black and white architecture which abounds there.

You will find these pretty cottages in many of the small villages, down twisty country lanes.

Of course there are plenty of Public Houses (pubs) on the Black and White Trail too.

Weobley, Dilwyn, Sarsfield, Eardisley, Kington and Pembridge are just some of the villages which we enjoyed visiting. You can usually find a pretty little teashop where you can have a refreshing cuppa and a cake (or two) before continuing along the route. We particularly enjoyed the Old Forge in Weobley which is a gift shop too!

Joining in with Scenic Sunday this week , click on the link to see more of the beautiful world in which we live.


  1. The Black and White architecture is iconic - I just think 'England'. I wonder if it's found all over or just in certain areas. Beautiful!

  2. Beautiful photo's Maggie.. I love this sort of architecture , makes me smile when I see it. Beautiful part of England you show us.
    Have a nice weekend.

  3. I would love to visit Herefordshire one day. Lovely photos and post, Maggie.

  4. Maggie,

    How lovely. Just gorgeous photos. You are so fortunate to do all this traveling. I wish I had taken more pictures in England and France. Now I take the camera everywhere!


  5. Thanks for sharing, Maggie. The names of the villages are as delightful as the black and white architecture. ~ sarah

  6. I never get tired of the black and white buildings, or tea shops for that matter! I'm just finishing up a series on Chester which you might know has a number of the beautiful buildings.

  7. when I was in England last year we visited Sissinghurst Gardens and went through a little village that looked like this. I can't remember the name of it now.

  8. These homes and pubs are so "fairytale"! I really really need to see England someday.

  9. Just what I needed this morning, peaceful and beautiful.

  10. so glad I stopped by from Scenic Sunday! pretty photos and scenery! love it!

  11. Nowhere else will one see this architecture - it's so English! Of course they try to copy it here but don't succeed too well!!

    Sorry I've been gone so long - commenting has just been near the bottom of my to do list since getting back - shameful I know but just not enough hours for everything.

    I'll soon be posting a story of the lovely gentlemen from Normandy I met in Devon - I have an invitation to visit and learn to make chevre! More on this later.

    Hugs - Mary


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
