Herefordshire is full of lovely villages, quite a few in black and white!

Another nice pair today Almeley and Woonton not a kick in the pants from each other.

I used to stand in for the manager at our company's Hereford shop back in the fifties, loved the place, full of beautiful girls, eye candy. :)
I knew most of the villages, a large part of our custom was gypsy, they were there for the hop and fruit picking .


One of the villages was called Suckley, some local wags regularly removed the ' le ' from the name on the signpost and replaced it with an ' m '

Looks like the sign at Bredon was still there on Pottery Cottage in August 2016 when the google streetview camera passed by.

It has a "famous" watersplash, but also a TR7 Convertible in the geograph pic!
