Exploring Gloucestershire, Stained Glass Windows and a Period Bus Stop

Off for a jaunt today to deepest (or highest) Gloucestershire. We've driven past the signs to it often, and today we went up the hill from Nailsworth to Minchinhampton. Period architecture in spades…
This is a 17th Century market hall - similar to the one in Tetbury. 
Saw lots of these signs around - most of them on what looked like former pubs. Not able to sample the brew, so not sure how true the claim is.
A very impressive church spire and window. 
The window from inside the church. 
Another grand window. 
The roof was delicately decorated. 
Spotted this furry parishioner sitting on a pew at the back of the church. 
Another grand window over the way in. 
More delicate decoration on the roof. 
Looking back up the aisle. 
This gravestone has been around so long that it's lost most of its detail. 
Interestingly named organic dairy… 
Plaque on the market hall. 
A grey telephone box - is this undercoated waiting for a fresh coat of red paint? 
Just in case you weren't sure. 
And just in case you weren't a paranoid dog owner. 
Went for a walk with Bella up on the common (which is shared by cows and golfers as well as dog walkers.Found this rather grand bus shelter. 
This day a year ago, I bought these rainbow coloured strings for my guitar - sounded bright!
