Words on Wednesday, PISHILL .A village in England.

Words on Wednesday are supplied by River today and for the whole month. They are.
  Blankets, Striding, Hocus pocus, Sluggishly, Comparative, Notebook.


My story relates to the hamlet of PISHILL within the Chiltern Hills of Oxfordshire in England.
Yes, its name is spelt correctly, although *Comparative in ribaldry as our Australian Ship Creek and is a small hamlet reminiscent of Frogs hollow, a medieval-themed village mentioned in previous posts; its reputation embellished by *Hocus Pocus.
This small hamlet is situated within a steep valley, my aged *Notebook reveals information sourced from my youth and mentions that, it was only suitable for growing Marrowfat peas, thereby the name of the hamlet becoming a derivation of the word peas.
Pishill a short distance from Dorchester on the Thames (Not to be confused with Dorchester in Dorset England), is where I often went fishing for tiddlers and *Striding out on nature walks. Pishill is frequently covered by fog which *Blankets the valley and the *Sluggishly running brook which flows onwards to its exit within the river Thame nearby, another arm of the Mighty Thames.

I have revisited Pishill several times on frequent visits to  England, my birthplace, particularly the Crown Inn at Pishill, a favourite watering place.

Well done.

It seems like this evokes a similar feeling to how people react when visiting hobbiton in New Zealand. Add a bit more realism with the town actually functioning.
