More about this scene

Firmly back in Bedfordshire and heading south, our route passes through Blunham, a most attractive village, where the poet John Donne was rector from 1622 until his death in 1632, although he was also Dean of St Paul's. This view gives a good idea of the village centre: the former inn, The Ragged Staff, is by the telephone pole, and the thatched cottage opposite, The Ovens, is dated 1699. The foreground cottage has a late 16th-century chimney, but was refronted in the 19th century.
