Heath and Reach is a village between Woburn and Leighton Buzzard. Quite near our Newport Pagnell home.

We visited to see the folly

It begs the questions of who was she, why did she do this, what else did she do? It could drive you crazy so you just have to move on. 3x4 Heath & Reach folly side.jpg (8388 bytes)

Things are blooming and getting very green in this cottage's garden. It looks very homey. This is two cottages both a good size.

This seems like a lovely and quiet place to live. Probably not much night life bu then I did see a couple of pubs across the street so you never know.
