Cloudy and showery today but there was a Farmers Market here today, so we went. Very nice what was there but there were only five stalls. We brought from three of them as we support our industry where we can. Bread, cheese and veg all good stuff. We walked on towards the Tesco, where currently there are good savings to be had on wine…. err we made two trips to fill the cellar.
Hungerford has some pretty impressive period houses all along the High St. But sad to say I think it has had a slightly more prosperous past than present. It was on two important routes, London to Bath and Oxford to Salisbury, the resulting in trade and wealth for some folk and some great buildings.

Supper was Italian eggs and sausages with leeks.
PS Reader you won’t believe this but I am convinced Lord Grantham (aka actor Hugh Bonneville) walked past in the early evening. He and his wife were wearing those really expensive boots which caught my eye first. They had a whole bunch of little yappy dogs with them, I am so sure it was him, as the lady with him looked just like his wife in photos, but if it wasn’t them it must have been his twin brother.
