Isleham is a village which is part of Ely, in Cambridgeshire in East Anglia, and where we called home for 3+ years. It's peaceful and quiet and kind of out in the middle of nowhere, as we discovered people are more apt to drive through the bigger towns around it, and not through it.

If you're into history and old things, there's even the Isleham Priory Church. For a while, I'd drive by this old building every day and wonder what it was...turns out it's old as dirt (or nearly so...it was built around 1090, and no, that's not a typo). It was amazing to have something like that just a stone's throw away from where you lived, and no, I didn't throw stones at it. I'd probably be arrested.

So if you think the only things to see in England involve cities, I'll just take the rest of this post and show you with my awesome pictures why you must explore the countryside.

I'd often stop to take a picture or two of the sunsets.
Come on by for J tomorrow!
