If you haven't visited @dogwoodcrossingmiles yet, you're missing out! Not only can you expect to see this kind of incredible architecture (as shot by our own Cr Saxelby), but Dogwood is host to some of the most spectacular art you've ever seen. Not to mention there's a library attached too - what else do you need for a gorgeous day out?!⠀ 📸: @peter.saxelby⠀ #lovewesterndowns #regionalpride #art #culture #community Read More
