Still in Kingsclere here's a view of the village green. The road in the foreground used to be the busy A339 between Newbury and Basingstoke, now there is a bypass around the village which has turned the village centre into a peaceful place.
Yately village green with the church in the background. The benches belong to the pub, the corner of which you can see on the right. Unfortunately the benches have not seen much use this summer as the weather has been so poor.
Although I didn't enter this months theme I thought I'd show you who's twinned with Basingstoke. Why Alencon is seperate from the others I really don't know. There are roads in the town named after Alencon and Euskirchen but not Braine.
This was a pile of logs awaiting collection beside the road in Lasham. The timber is not of the best quality so I guess it will be used for fencing. I loved the honey colour of freshly sawn timber which was just a bit damp after all the rain we've had.
Fingerpost in Overton. This type of sign was very common at road junctions prior to the implimentation of national road numbering. As you can see this post is situated at the junction of two major roads and would have been an important staging point.
A pair of telephone boxes found in Overton. These red boxes once found all over the place are now few and far between. A part of British streetscape now almost extinct around here. In fact telephone boxes are being removed completely due to lack of use in some area's.
