Thank you! I think I might die of happiness if I were to ever see those buildings for real.

I have always loved that half-timber design. The College Town in Ames here has many buildings like that, though they are all rather less than authentic. *SK*

Love to see the half-timbered buildings...they just epitomise England.

Pleasure, Trixie! I added a link to a Lavenham tour, it has lots of great photos. You'll like that.
BritNTn--by 'eck, lass! You must be a Mancunian or you're missing the Rover's Return something rotten! We never owned a cottage, we rented a different one each year, always close enough to get the folks out of London but far enough apart for Frances to get us to see something new.

I adore this architecture and looks quite a bit like parts of where I live in NEW england. Particularly downtown Sandwich, one town over from me. They even have two tea shops where we often go for cream teas. Ahh, but to be in england, so much nicer...
