Tisbury

May 2014 - My first visit to the Wiltshire village of Tisbury.
Tisbury is the largest village in the Nadder Valley and has been a settlement for over 2,000 years. As the largest settlement for some ten miles round, Tisbury lies between the A303 and A30 trunk roads and is on the main railway line from London to the southwest. The railway arrived here in 1859.

This yew tree in the churchyard has been estimated to be about 4000 years old.

In this picture you can see how large the tree girth is.

Sadly the tree has had some structural support added as you can see from the concrete visible in this picture.

Back in the centre of the village. The shop front on the right with the arched window bears the name Randall. You just make out the words Plumber Gas and Water Engineer.

Opposite the bank is the village garage. A rare site these days.
