First cottages of the year - Letchmore Heath

Just to whet your appetite. Here are a few pretty cottages from the little village of Letchmore Heath, just a couple of miles from home. Due to its proximity to Elstree Studios it has been frequently used as a set in films, including cult 60s TV series The Avengers and was the setting for the film The Village of the Damned! But perhaps  Letchmore Heath is best known for Bhaktivedanta Manor, home to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, the purchase of which was I believe funded by Beatle George Harrison. The village has a number of swanky manor houses but it was the little cottages (which come at very swanky prices!) that I snapped for you. Enjoy!


























And here's how those pretty cottages looked like in the 1960s film The VIllage of the Damned...
