More Tea, Vicar?

Some things in England don’t change very much over the years – sadly, our red telephone boxes have mostly been flogged off and you don’t see that many helmeted bobbies on the beat nowadays - but come this time of year, you can still see village fetes springing up all over the country. This one took place at the weekend on the Vicarage lawn at Northam.

  1. A note for American viewers: Northam is a small town to the North of Bideford. Originally both towns were separated by fields but now it is hard sometimes to identify the boundary between the two places.

    The district of Northam includes Appledore a fishing village and arts community at the mouth of the River Torridge and Westward Ho! which was built in the mid 1800’s as a beach resort and named after Charles Kingsley’s novel. All three communities are join together and along with East-the-Water make up the Bideford area.
