Around our Village
This morning’s walk started at our front door and took us along some of the many lanes around here. Because it’s so close to home I’ve not thought of this route as a real “walk” before, more like an hour’s “functional exercise”. But just because it’s literally on our doorstep doesn’t make it any less lovely. I hope you think so too.
We crossed the road and went down the lane past the mysterious Clifton Hall. It’s only in winter that you can glimpse the chimneys (and the flag) through the bare trees.
Turned left, down the next lane:
and walked a bit further:
Turned left into Lea Lane:
Said BAA to some sheep. They were unimpressed:
Walked past the farm:
We were surprised to see a car today. Usually there aren’t any, so this sign was most reassuring!:
A lot of sheep came to say BAA to us:
Turned into Church Lane:
Had a look at Windmill Farm:
Considered buying eggs…..maybe next time:
Continued along to the church:
Followed the sign to the Church Hall:
Originally Clifton and Salwick School, it was built in 1837:
And partly rebuilt in 1887 in honour of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee:
Finally had a brisk walk back past the Village Green to get us home before it started to rain:
Whilst this post is really to celebrate the beauty of our local area, I thought I’d link it to Cee’s Which Way Foto Challenge.
If anyone gets this far in reading it……..well done and thank you. Why not reward yourself with a visit to Cee’s Challenge.
