English Chuchyard Fence
One of the most beautiful fences I have ever seen is the one around the churchyard in Chipping Campden, a small market town in the English Cotswolds. Chipping Campden itself is a very cute town with an old market hall smack in the middle of town. The church is off High Street, but still very close to the center.
I noticed the fence right away. It's highly decorative. Moreover, even though the church is close to the center, it was so peaceful and quiet here. Almost no one was walking here and the only sound I heard was the birds singing. Even though this was more than 25 years ago, I assume that it is still like this. Some things thankfully never change.
The black color (with some rust) of the fence contrasted beautifully with the typical honey colored stone of the Cotswold houses. Almost all the buildings in this area of England are built of that stone which gives the entire town a very warm feeling - even in the rain.
And the spiders, of course, liked it here, too.
Since it is Thursday I link up to Good Fences over at the Run-Around-Ranch where fence enthusiasts get together and show off their fences.
