Thorpe Salvin on the surface looks like Quintessential England. However, it is now full of Townies, who have nothing to do with real village life. Most work in our towns and cities, shopping elsewhere and killing off village life. Even the local village pub has died a death. Not a shop in sight anymore. When you get up close to many of the cottages, you will find they were recently rebuilt on the sites of old farm buildings or dwellings.
All the best
