Our photograph was taken early on a beautiful clear autumn morning near the village of Woodchester, near Stroud.

The village is famous for the Woodchester Roman Villa which contains over sixty four rooms of palacial proportions. Also uncovered was the famous Orpheus pavement which is usually covered over to protect it, but is periodically unearthed for the public to visit.

The villa was obviously high status and luxurious and spreads for at least two hundred yards making it one of the biggest roman villas in Britain. The famous pavement depicts the legend of Orpheus taming the wild animals and is set within complex geometrical patterns.
