In the tiny out-of-the-way Lancashire village of Wray, where tumbling rose briers obscured worn dates reading "1600-and-something" carved unevenly above doorways, there were no tea rooms,...

A Day at The Races Early summer mornings are always cool and refreshing in Britain and this morning is no exception. The honeysuckle is in full bloom in hedgerows and cascading over garden walls.
