I live in the small village of Acton Turville in Gloucestershire, which is 1 mile south of Badminton, famous for the annual Badminton Horse Trials, the Beaufort Hunt, and the "invention" of the game of Badminton. It was also the village where I was brought up, my playground being it's woodlands, fields, park and farms. It is therefore perhaps no surprise that many of the photos in my gallery are rural related. Most will not be the stunning scenic, sunsets etc like those taken by many of Panoramio photographers, but more of the simple documentary type photos of village streets, houses, shops etc, and life in the surrounding countryside. Where known, I have added information under the photos. With villages ever expanding, and life within them changing in so many ways, recording those simple scenes for future generations that may live, or visit those villages, I hope will be of historical interest. Footnote - All photos pre-2008 are scanned from either transparencies or negatives, plus some I took in the 1960/70's with cheap basic cameras, so please excuse the poor quality of some.
