    I've just moved to the village of Weobley (the 'o' is silent) in Herefordshire. 10 miles down the road from the old house but hundreds of years back in time. It has over 50 listed buildings in the village centre. Here are a few photos I took over the weekend while strolling about with the family.

    I love photos of old buildings/towns - the state where I live was only founded in 1829 so 'heritage' buildings are scarce.

    For the British contingent, Weobley is the setting for the One Show on BBC1 tonight. Apparently Squeeze are playing live (I think I can hear them warming up now), and many silly things will be happening too. Bedstead races, anyone?

    the guy that works with me at the record shop LOVES the latest Squeeze LP. I think their old ones are infinitely better, though their voices seem to be in fine fettle.

    They did "Take me I'm yours" and the title song from the new LP. And they did sound in good shape vocally (not that Chris Difford's voice was ever more than a croak really).

    I hadn't seen this thread yet, but that's a really pretty town you live in, and the countryside around it, from what I can tell, also looks wonderful. Congrats!
