A Photo from the Old Country

I'm in England, visiting family, fighting jet lag, and finishing a book. This afternoon, after a trip to Tesco (a large grocery chain) I stopped by Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, a narrow steep street built along the ramparts of the ruined Shaftesbury Abbey.  This highly picturesque street has been much photographed - I've seen jigsaw puzzles of it in U.S. stores. It was featured in the 1967 film Far From the Madding Crowd.

Lucky you being back in England. I love Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsburys. Gold Hill was also featured in the "Hovis Advert".

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Fun for you!! I'm with Diane, I love Tesco's and the rest of them. I also really liked Marks and Spencer. Tweeted and shared on FB.

You are right about the Hovis ad, Diane. Thanks for the link.

What I really like about British supermarkets, Ella, is the selection of prepared foods. Much better than the US.
