Truth be told, we didn’t mean to go to Bury Green. A subscriber alerted us to a whole collection of greens on the land above and between the Rib and Stort valleys. We missed a turn for our intended stop and meandered on through the lanes of East Hertfordshire until we happened upon Bury Green.
And very pleased we were. The cottages of the hamlet line the northern entrance and then fan out around a sizeable bit of tended grassland.
The old telephone box has been repurposed as miniature library. And there are a couple of farms on the edges of the hamlet. (There are other Bury Greens in the county, by the way.)
