Very nice too. I was impressed with the feel of the place when we walked around last year. I suspect the lack of big brand High Street stores helped me come to that conclusion
Bill Phillips: It does help.

There is a Malvern, Arkansas, have i told you that before?

love this collection, but the top, right with the bend in the road is my fav
Bill Phillips: I think you have. There are many American towns and cities with English names. Boston and Worcester for example but I don't think there is a Droitwich
