More about this scene

A 1930s Rover saloon is parked on the road. A trout stream flows through the water meadow here. This village, three miles from Andover, is renowned for awarding virgins' crowns at the funerals of chaste villagers who were members of the village church and born here. The crowns are made of hazel twigs decorated with black and white paper rosettes and hung with five parchment gauntlets. The last crown was awarded in 1974.
