The sound of silence
It is still possible to find some places where you can get away from it all and no longer hear the hum of traffic. You are surrounded by silence with only the occasional bird singing and cockerel crowing. Chaldron Herring is one of those places, situated in a hidden valley, a short distance from the sea. It can have hardly changed in the last 100 years.
Many of the old cottages still have traditional thatched roofs.
And beyond the gate beautiful gardens.
Parts of the church date back to 15th century.
Sadly the village school is no longer open, but the building is now used as the village hall. The school bell at the top of the building reminds us of it's past use.
There are no shops here either, just a telephone box and post box.
It still has a good pub though, which is where we ended up !
Do you have any special places you visit to find some tranquility too?
