English villages are not all alike, but in some ways they are not very different from one another. Almost every village has a church, the round or square tower of which can be seen from many miles away. Surrounding the church is the churchyard, where people are buried.
Moreover, each English village usually has its village green, which is a wide stretch of grass. There are houses or cottages built around it. Country life is now fairly comfortable and many villages have water pipes brought into each house. Most villages are so close to some small towns that people can go there to buy what they can’t find in their village shops.
