The lesser pleasures of Tickencote
After visiting Tickencote church you naturally turn your attention to the village.
It has a water mill on the Gwash - the Tickencote community website says it closed in the mid 1930s - a former school and cottages with names that make it sound the sort of place that the people who produce chocolate boxes go for their holidays.
One of them, Flower Pot Cottage, was once the Flower Pot pub and frequented by the poet John Clare.
