Fotheringhay, Peterborough PE8, UK

We came across this lovely village on one of our rambles and found it to be a delightful, picturesque village. We intended to pass through to pick up the next part of our walk but, instead, we popped into the church for a look-see. There is a small display of the history of Fotheringhay and the notables who had visited - some Kings and Queens. As a Scotsman, I was quite interested in the story of Mary, Queen of Scots who had dealings there. Of note, too, were the old-style box-pews. It was certainly worth the time to visit. The village is well-kept with lovely old stone houses and well-kept gardens full of bright flowers and I loved the library-in-a-phonebox.

Nice enough village, would be better if the locals didn't keep hitting the bridges.
