  1. Gee, Tony! I want to give you a list of all of the places we toured while visiting your beautiful country, so you can photograph them! This is the second time that you have done a better job, than I! {That I know of.} The first was Chawton cottage . . . when I first discovered your blog! I think I took pictures of "things", but you photograph the "Big Picture"! And I really want to thank you for that! I'm going to link from my facebook page . . . I hope you don't mind? Thank you for sharing your wonderful shots! You shot our hotel, the pubs where we dined . . . just everything! Thank you, Thank you!

  3. Tony, I visited Stratford-Upon-Avon with a tour group to see Shakespeare's birthplace, not realizing that these other beautiful existed. The tour never bothered to stop at these sites. Oh, how much I missed! Thanks for showing me these buildings.

  4. Several years ago, I, too visited the very impressive and beautiful Stratford -Upon-Avon without taking as many stunning photos as you. I rambled through the town & Hathaway's Cottage-the benefit of non-tour groups. I'm appalled now to think there is such a following that are out to disprove Shakespeare as the author of his fine works.
