A wander around the narrow streets of Appledore, Devon

A change of scenery is in order for this blog post. You'll find no ghost signs, urban decay or disused railways today, but instead pictures from a recent week away in Devon, and in particular the narrow paths and roads of Appledore in Devon.

Little to say about the first few. I think the pictures speak for themselves, showing what a trult beautiful place it is.

A bit of variation now as we deviate fleetingly to look at some of the wonderful doors in Appledore (no pun intended).

This next picture is probably my favourite of the lot, with the quirky display of brass instruments decorating the window ledge.

Okay, so I did start off my saying there would be no ghost signs, but this is a very different sort of ghost sign to those I normally post about. This is a mosaic in a doorway, presumably of an old shop. I did a quick search but could find nothing about what this used to be.

So once again, apologies for the lack of commentary in this post, but I really do think the pictures tell the story.
