Inda Cottage SwefflingTwice a year Richard Atkinson and Rob Yates for a week pretty much put their home into store and transform their Sweffling cottage into a living collection of antique/collectible/useable still lifes for sale ... quite stunning stuff.  This week's show ends tomorrow but their next one will be in October.

Aerial view of Sweffling windmillThanks to Ivan and Gosia we now know the Sweffling windmill (grid ref TM 634902 264054) is on the left up an apparently unnamed road off Low Road.  The base is a private home but a pic in the University of Kent collection shows the top was still on in 1933.

It's the very pleasant Sweffling Village Fete this Saturday and though the tug of war has gone there's all the usual stuff plus belly dancing, tractor rides, a fun dog show and most important a beer tent (we'd guess Earl Soham beer, it was last time we went).
