The cattle grid on the lane to Brimmon hill farm. The only reason I went over the grid was I saw some mushrooms and Today I had set my mind on looking and photographing mushrooms hopefully colourful toadstools!

A fairy village is a clustered fairy settlement or community, larger than a hamlet with the population ranging from tens to a few hundred and we have a few villages here in Newtown.
just across the road to the village I saw the butler who was quite amuzed watching me taking photos of the village,

and this must be a hamlet
this fairy village is just outside our front gate
