    Oh, those are lovely ‘photos, Norman! I half-expect to see Lord Peter Wimsey or Miss Marple in one of them…

  2. Blighty says:

    Marvellous photos, one made me think of The Mysterious Affair at the Styles (?is that the right title?) and the one with the moat made me think of old Sherlock Holmes – The Valley of Fear.

  3. Norman Price says:

    More information on these photos in the next few days. ๐Ÿ˜‰ England is still a beautiful country if you go out of the big cities and off the main roads. Blighty, no “the” in front of Styles.

    Lovely photos, and I am eagerly awaiting more info. thanks for sharing these.

    Lovely photos, but I can’t fathom how so many murders were committed in this beautiful, idyllic setting.

  6. Norman Price says:

    Kathy, having once lived in one of these idyllic villages I can confirm there are frequent problems with boundary disputes, quarrels about trees, access, cars, septic tanks, bore holes, and animals.
    The people aren’t always as nice as the setting, both in crime fiction and in real life.

  7. kathy d. says:

    But are trees, etc., enough of a motive for murder?
