On my recent trip to England I went to Houghton, a village on the banks of the Great Ouse River in Cambridgeshire. The homes are so beautiful and different from what I am used to. I especially love the houses with thatched roofs. They look so cozy and inviting. Someday I would like to have a closer look and also see the inside of one of these homes. Maybe I will find a bed and breakfast in a house with a thatched roof!
One of the houses I saw with a thatched roof was quite different. It had a row of ducks along the very top of the roof. These ducks were thatched, not hatched!
There is also an 18th-century watermill, Houghton Mill, in this village that is part of the National Trust. It is well worth taking the time to check it out. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/houghton-mill-and-waterclose-meadows
