Radley Christmas Illuminations

Walking around Radley after dark at this time of year, one will come across many examples of colourful festive illuminations where people have gone to, sometimes very considerable, lengths to decorate their homes and gardens with Christmas lights. This has long been a bit of a tradition in Radley but, with the possibilities now greatly expanded by modern low-cost LED lighting, the diplays are becoming even more spectacular, year on year. This display in Foxborough Road is particularly imaginative and photogenic without being completely over the top.
