The other day I found myself standing in a scene that to me seemed so thoroughly English it had to be a Jane Austen movie set.

I was out and about walking in the gently rolling Oxfordshire countryside. Ahead of me, wooly sheep were grazing in a field, with the rooftops and chimneys of a small town peeking over the trees in the background, the church tower standing tall in the half hearted winter sunshine that found its way between the clouds.

Oh so English!
