Tackley is a village a couple of miles off the main Oxford to Banbury road. One striking thing about the western side of the village is that it obviously developed around the 17th-century Manor. There is a small triangular green and a row of houses fronted by some rather grand windows and it is not too difficult to imagine a couple of Victorian shops doing a brisk business.
There is also a large and exceptional thatched, stone-built stables associated with the old manor. I chose to draw them one September afternoon between passing rain showers.
