Happy Fence Friday . . . it is an interesting path where this leads to Regis ... the film "The Last Vampire was filmed here ;-) after a fire destroyed the roof of the old building which was then declared unsafe to enter and the insurance case continued for some time ... now they do tours of the old buildings and area ... it sits on the River Avon and has a wonderful Saxon Mill ... and so this is an area rich in history and intrigue ;-) enjoy your weekend also and hope you take many interesting pictures ... thanks for the interest, perhaps a little boring maybe ;-) but
I did my best as it is HFF ;-) Bisous, bon weekend oOo

A fine fence and an interesting stone path - though it looks a little as though most walk alongside it. Love the Hereford shot.

Happy Fence Friday . . . a beautiful herd of cattle George, although not large, but they roam relatively freely here and are in fine shape ;-) and yes this pathway is old ... and as mentioned above this area is rich in history and always interesting to visit . the fields beyond this pathway lead to a lovely old church up on a hill which I painted ... my first ever landscape ;-) so its special for me .. .HFF George and liked yours too ;-) oOo

and now they have restored the right to do this ;-))) crazy ... and yes an interesting
track to perform on I think, amazed there were no near misses but no doubt they
are saving themselves for the big one ;-) Hamilton could hardly disguise his pleasure
and Nico has such a "fixed" smile on his face ;-) oh this is going to be fun to watch ;-)
will the best man win ? we shall see ~ enjoy George

History
Guy's Cliffe House

Guy's Cliffe has been occupied since Saxon times and derives its name from the legendary Guy of Warwick. Guy is supposed to have retired to a hermitage on this site, this legend led to the founding of a chantry. The chantry was established in 1423 as the Chapel of St Mary Magdelene and the rock-carved stables and storehouses still remain. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII the site passed into private hands. The house itself dates from 1751 and was started by Samuel Greatheed, a West India merchant and Member of Parliament for Coventry 1747-1761.

Guy's Cliffe House was sold in 1947 with the intention of converting it into a hotel, but these plans came to nothing and the house fell into disrepair. In 1955 the house was purchased by Aldwyn Porter and the chapel leased to the Freemasons, establishing a connection with the Masons that remains today. The roof had fallen in by 1966. In 1992 during the filming of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (The Last Vampyre) a fire scene got out of control and seriously damaged the building, leading to an insurance claim. English Heritage has given the building grade II listed status.

The chapel, still used for Masonic ceremonies, contains a large statue depicting Guy of Warwick. Piers Gaveston, the favourite of Edward II, sought refuge and was (allegedly) apprehended here before his execution on nearby Blacklow Hill at Leek Wootton. Saxon Mill on the River Avon, a former water powered mill, now a pub and restaurant.
