  1. Hello you folks who set up this absolutely fantastic Blogspot "Bit about Britain with its beautiful pics. Congrats to the 5 star photographer who took these photos of our village church. Have lived here since 1967 and my 3 children attended the village primary school below the church and almshouses also built by Lady Alice. .Attended Carol service last year 2015 with my grandchildren from Qsld.but not as good as the candle lit one previously.! I showed them Lady Alice's tomb and the 'skelly bones' below but they were not as clear as your photograph! The Queen Mum used to visit as her Lady in waiting was Lady Hambledon who once lived in the Old Rectory in Parson's Lane .The school kids met her in church and gave her flowers. The only other Ewelme is 'down under' in New Zealand where there is an Ewelme Cottage built by a former Rector of our church, Rev Vicesimus Lush!! Sir William de La Pole played quite a part in the Wars of the Roses.Most of those who have lived in or near Ewelme never forget our village and Cow Common and we see free air shows at the airfield, Red Arrows et al Very far removed from Geoffrey Chaucer!! I wish I could send them your photos in a calendar as they ought to know why that cottage,in Auckland - now tourist attraction was named after!
