Lovely picture Paul - added to my bandstand tour.
Yes lovely pic Paul: BUT it does look a liitle on the cool side!
Very pretty winter scene, Paul.
Interesting shot, the snow makes it seem almost monochrome. BTW I believe Jane Austen attended the school which was housed in the Abbey Gateway (this is still standing). The Forbury itself was outside of the confines of the Abbey, but I imagine Jane Austen and her friends would have played in the Forbury.
