The phantasmagorically charming little village of Castle Combe (county Wiltshire, England) The castle which gave the village its name was once a Roman fort, then used and abused by those stealthy Saxons, later became a Norman stone castle, and fell into ruin by the mid-14th century; with only a stone quarry where feral villagers pillaged rocks to build their homes remaining. This information is from the Castle Combe village website, which makes it all sound rather dire. 

   I mean no disrespect to whatever dour old soul wrote said website; but, you know, LOOK AT THIS STREET and get over that old castle, I say. This street is paradise on earth! (image by Wikimedia)
