... this little bridge that had what I think was a little museum beside it. The cottage there was postcard worthy and a nice man stopped & pointed out a huge mushroom in the tree for me to take a photo of. We walked past all the tiny shops, of which many were bakeries.

There are canons and a banqueting hall with a hammer beam roof, though not nearly as nice as the one in Hampton Court. It also has a display of weaponry. There is also a large building in which those who have died in battle ...
