Tibbohton

To the west side of Tibbohton and overlooked by a thatched cottage is the home of Dudley Dagins. A retired station master, his not so  perfectly appointed garden, sits straddling the station he once served. Trains still depart on a regular basis, but generally to Tibbohton time and not Greenwich.

A short walk away, you will reach East Tibbohton. Hidden from the outside world, this charming little place contains the very distant relatives of Dudley. In complete opposite of Dudleys ramshackle abode, all the homes here, have some sort of pride, with colourful painted doors and windows. Terracotta plant pots flow from every spare corner, filled with flowers, herbs and vegetables.

Little picket fences embrace each home, with an array of assorted food, including jams, pickles, fruit, bread and vegetables on sale wherever possible.

Wonky brick chimneys pierce through the grasses and vegetation on each of the humble dwellings. Wooden wheelbarrows bursting with colourful flowers, the odd three legged stool scattered around, evidence that at some point, a nearby inhabitant had sat and watched the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
