Hubby and I went for a walk around Hambleden this afternoon with friends. My main photo is of the old bakery complete with Hovis sign, where a brook flows freely down to Hambelden lock. My extra is gates to the Elizabethan manor house opposite the church, formerly the home of Maria Carmela Viscountess Hambleden,was built in 1603 of flint and brick for Emanuel 11th Baron Scrope who became Earl of Sunderland. The Manor House, Hambleden is also the former home of Lord Cardigan who led the ill-fated Charge of the Light Brigade.
