Thanks very much!Very nice, Britain at its best!
Fair comment. Where I would prefer to live in a bigger city during my younger years, I can imagine I might prefer a place like Wells to live within a commutable distance to a larger city. In this case, Bristol is not far away but Wells does not have a train link, only bus. Glad you like the pictures. Thanks for commenting.Well if I had a good Job there and a good Internet connection I would actually prefer to live in a city like Wells than in London. In my opinion a charming surrounding and short distance to nature is more often needed than the cultural advantages of a big city. But it would be great if a bigger city is not that far away -(lets say 30 km) but it also should not be too close.
Of course, another beautiful part of the country.I'm very familiar with this kind of scene, from my time spent living in the southern cotswolds. charming and lovely.
Bradford-on-Avon looks also very nice. In my view it would be "Picture perfect" if the streets had cobblestone pavement. Asphalt always looks cheap (especially with this yellow stripes ). How does the traditonal surface of such streets look in this Region?
But overall again a very nice city. Someday I have to do a long holiday in the UK and explore the smaler cities and the nice villages and beaches far away from the big cities.
It may well look picture perfect with cobbled streets but it's less practical, also have you ever lived on a cobbled or paved street? It's very noisy. With ashfalt cars can quietly whisk passed those street facing buildings.
Beautiful places, idyllically English. :cheers:
All very good comments - thanks very much! One tends to find that the pedestrianised streets are actually cobbled, even some for vehicles, but predominantly the roads are tarmac. True though that a lighter colour would be more inviting but hey ho.Yes I live in the old town of my city, where every street is a cobble paved street and I prefer it a lot . Of course this streets are no main streets with lots of trafic. The main streets should be with asphalt but the ordinary old town streets should be cobbled in my opinion. Of course you need a speed limit in such areas but old town areas are often very narrow. If you drive lets say 10-20 km/hour the rolling noise is less than the motor noise so it makes not much different any more. This will maybe Change with the electro-car. But you are right Asphalt has advantages - it is also cheaper and better for disabled People - but there are fine solutions for this in stone too. - but of course this places here are idyllic enough.
Thanks mate!^^ These new also looking good, very nice
