An easing of Lockdown to allow me to to stay overnight in Carluke and Caersws can’t come soon enough; the appeal of Huntingdonshire is wearing thin.
That’s not to say little Over is without charm, even for this Charming Man.
Over is Proper Fen Edge, a mile out from the slowly-emerging New Town of Northstowe.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before; frankly they could change the name from Over to Willingham or Earith and you’d be none the wiser.
One main street, one pub, one shop (a Premier rather than a Co-op) and four tonnes of thatch and roses.
No-one on the streets, but a heartening number of gentlefolk and children out on bikes into the Fens.
One Two Tone van, one Community Centre bar with Wherry on last time I was here, and one hard working Wells local with Wainwright and Atlantic on the bar and a food takeaway service hopefully keeping them afloat.
You wouldn’t spend your holidays here. Or perhaps you will.
