Two villages and four hamlets are dotted along the valley of a stream called the Dunt after a Saxon chief who lived in the area. Duntisbourne Leer - a picture–book pretty cluster of stone houses and barns nestles round a shallow ford. The name of the hamlet is derived from its one-time owners, the abbey of Lire in Normandy.

Our photograph shows the farm buildings, some with pigeon nesting holes in their gables clustered around the ford. A gaggle of goslings and ducklings add a finishing touch to this idyllic scene.
