"But I have a perfect village of my own finding, which I pride myself is quite unknown. It is Chelsworth. It lies completely hidden in a little valley. Its cottages are irregular, very well kept and finely timbered. It borders a stream, a quiet reedy stream, whose banks are lined with rich and gigantic trees. I can't tell you why I think it is perfect. Perhaps it is because Chelsworth has been left to itself.".
