Oxfordshire - UK 
We stayed a month with Darren and Rosa and while there, we went to this historic site with them.  It's called Minster Lovell and is the ruins of a once great hall from the 16th century, along with a church that is still in use today.

This building was apart from the main ruins, and it was a Dovecote.  Strangely enough it housed Doves. It was very difficult to photograph as it was so dark inside.

This is the church at Minster Lovell, surrounded by gravestones so old you can't read the inscription anymore!

Another hard-to-get photo, this is the ceiling of the entranceway, with all its intricate stonework.

This is the pathway leading into the entrance of the hall, all the stones and the wooden inserts are original.  They have stood the test of time very well!

Burford - another place we visited while staying with Darren and Rosa, well known for its main street and is called 'the gateway to the Cotwolds'.  Quaint but touristy.
