I love a little bit of hand sewing… and what better way to spend time sewing by hand than when you have something great to watch on the telly?
I’m such a fan of English period dramas so when I was approached to review ‘Lark Rise to Candleford’ on my blog, how could I resist?
Lark Rise to Candleford is the most gorgeous series, set around the 1890’s. It is about Candleford, a market town which is moving with the times, embracing progress and all that comes with it - and the hamlet next door, Lark Rise - the poorer neighbour whose inhabitants are mainly hard working, but uneducated.
The series begins with Laura Timmins (Olivia Hallinan) leaving Lark Rise to go and work at the post office in Candleford. This simple act of a young girl moving to a new, exciting place becomes an avalanche for drama, intrigue, gossip and town scandal.
Love it! Who knew that working at the post office in the 1890’s could be so exciting?
I’m hooked on this series and if you love watching British period drama, you will love it too. I’m sure!
With thanks to the generous people at Roadshow Entertainment, I have the box set (series 1-4) of Lark Rise to Candleford to give away.
If you would like the chance to win, leave a comment telling me:
If you lived in an English country village, what would you like your role/job to be and why?
Personally, I think the job in the post office sounds good to me. Find out all of the town gossip and be the hub of activity.
