November. Castle Coombe, Wiltshire, reputedly one of Britain's prettiest villages
has provided the background to many cinema films including the 1967 musical
Do Doolittle. Dating from the 1500s, many of the houses have medieval foundations
but over time have been restored. This photo was taken before the village achieved
a place in popular culture and became a tourist attraction. Water Street in the
picture once had a central drain leading to the tiny river By Brook, crossed by
the bridge in the foreground.
