Ewelme Gallery

Here are a few scenes of Ewelme, taken with a low cost digital camera. Some more professional views can be seen from the Midsomer Murders site by clicking here.

This view is one of our favourites and would be seen by drivers approaching the village from the South. It was taken from the bend on Rabbit Hill, and overlooks Cow Common, the Church adjoining the slopping buildings of the Alms Houses and School. Whilst the resolution and focus is not perfect, the contrasts do help to at least give the  "impression" of the archetypal English village, don't you think? We liked this so much that we have used it as a desktop background on one of our PCs. If you have such a favourite picture, you can do the same, by opening it in your internet Explorer, right clicking on it, and then selecting "Save as Background". You can try it out with this one if you like.

Here is the old Primary School. It has two large classrooms, divided between the two floors.


This is Kings Pool, which feeds the Watercress Beds further down the village. The two houses in the background just obscure what was the village shop and Post Office, which was originally built as a Methodist chapel - a sign of the inevitable changing times

This is a view of part of the Watercress Beds from the Ford. Since this picture was taken, the Chiltern Society has started a programme of restoration and conservation. Trout, Water Voles, Kingfishers, Ducks and Coots are all beginning to re-establish themselves again. For more information about the Chiltern Society click here.


This is our only remaining pub - The Shepherd's Hut, viewed from across the Watercress Beds by the bridge, on the West side of the village. Rising above the right hand tip of the pub can be seen one of the houses in Eyres Close. It's an extremely short walk to the pub, which is very convenient as they often play some rather good Jazz there!

On the subject of the Shepherd's Hut and walks, the BBC have published a description of one as a "Walk of the Month. To see it click here.
