A great pair of tits, left, a Blue Tit, on the right, a long-tail tit.

Yum yum yum. Lemon drizzle cake! Yum yum yum

Sadly for those like me used to espressos & lattes, the coffee is of the instant variety but tea generally doesn’t require any special hardware to make, so the Tea Shed is a great place for tea and cake. However you like your refreshments, the Tea Shed is a delightful place to visit. Read more

You know when you love what it does for you instantly, and the more you investigate, the more you discover just how wonderful it is? It makes you feel like someone has put so much love into something that it overflows out and kind of makes you feel loved too. Read more
