Hello Gert,

Nothing special .... I don't think so; this is a street full of busy people, some carrying bags, some carrying on their heads, and poor people taking on the role of horses! There are shops, a mosque and hardly a spare space in your photograph! It is organised chaos! Amazing!
Is that a soldier or policeman, in the f/g?
The street looks to have tracks, as well, as if a tram might make its way through this busy thoroughfare!

I just love the shop types!
Did they make you smile?
Novelty Cloth Store, Detective Agency, certainly not the type of shop that I would have expected!!

The two photographs of the street look as if they have been taken years apart, not hours!
What an amazing record!

Thanks for sharing these,
Bev :-)

Default To holmertz: Heydon Village

Thank you for your critique, Gert.

I hope I haven't given you the impression of a gated community, it is far from that.
I suppose the locals would have preferred the through road to remain open, especially the pub, but the lord, a few centuries ago, wielded great power!

This pretty village welcomes visitors.
A new car park has been constructed, there are usually festivals, to encourage people to visit and there are a few shops, craft ones as well as tea rooms..
Sadly, when we were there, the weather was against us and on a day when everything was closed. There were no other visitors but us!!!

Kind regards,
Bev
