A walk to the windmill

Up early this morning to watch the Grand Prix qualifying and it was a nice surprise to see Jenson Button on pole. With the weather not knowing what it wanted to do we decided to stay put.... we then put on our walking shoes and walked up to the windmill at the top of the hill in Napton. It was a nice walk up the half eaten apple as they call it, to the windmill which is now a private house. So it was a bit disappointing that we couldn't go in and see it. The views from the top were fantastic and you can see why someone brought this property.

We then walked back via the village and were quite shocked at the new houses built on the hill. They had built a stone face front on them and the rest was new brick, so from the hillside it blended in with the other property's. Cheapskates we think....

The weather then turned for the worse with some howling rain showers, so it was light the fire and watch the Rugby, as we couldn't watch England play football as it was on Satanta. Shame on you whoever!!!
